Theater Talk: BPT's 'The Children's Hour;' BUA's 'The Homosexuals' open tonight

Lillian Hellman's "The Children's Hour" from the 1930s is not a "modern" play, but in style harkens back to Henrik Ibsen's realist dramas.  With a controversial topic, a rumor of lesbianism at a girl's school, Buffalo Public Theatre opens tonight at The New Phoenix Theatre on Johnson Park.

If you rewrote the popular TV show "Friends" with all-gay characters, you'd have "The Homosexuals" which opens tonight at the Alleyway.  And mark your calendars for "4 Girls 4: A Christmas Together" one night only December 3rd with an all-star cast. 


Listen for Theater Talk, Friday morning at 6:45 and 8:45 during Morning Edition.
