Theatre for Sun., May 7
  • Arts



    Paula Vogel's thrilling drama follows the journey of a small theatre company as they tell us the story of Sholem Asch's controversial play, The God of Vengeance, from its origins in Poland 1907. The play achieved great success in Europe and the Yiddish theatre scene of downtown New York City. But when an English-translation was attempted on Broadway, it was too scandalous for the general public, and the entire cast was arrested and charged with obscenity. An all-star cast is directed by Lara Toner Haddock for Austin Playhouse, with musical direction by Lyn Koenning, and we've got Bob Abelman's full review right here.
    Through May 14. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 2pm. $21 and up (pick your price, Thursdays).

    The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940

    A cross between Agatha Christie and Charles Ludlam - seasoned with a dash of Noises Off - this play, produced by City Theatre Austin, brings the laughs as those assembled (or at least those who aren't killed off) untangle the mystery of the "Stage Door Slasher," but not before the audience has been treated to a rollicking good time.
    Through May 14. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 3pm. $15-25.
