Theater Talk: Triple Threat Collaboration at ICTC

In this 100th anniversary of the Easter Uprising which ultimately led to the independent Irish Republic of today, there is considerable interest in the great Irish poet, playwright, and political activist William Butler Yeats. THE YEATS PROJECT: TWO PLAYS BY W.B. YEATS combines the dramatic direction of Irish Classical's Vincent O'Neill, Torn Space's visually arresting sets (Dan Shanahan), and movement by Lehrer Dance (Jon Lehrer). It opens tonight at the Andrews Theatre.

Other productions noted include HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING, the classic musical by Frank Loesser, directed by Chris Kelly all about the "Mad Men" era. It's running at MusicalFare Theatre in Amherst through May 15.

How To Succeed is at Musicalfare through May 15.

THE MARK OF CAIN about racism in America is presented by Subversive Theatre at the Manny Fried Playhouse, 255 Great Arrow, through April 30. And WOMEN ON FIRE, originally a series of homologues, is now a play with a veteran cast of Buffalo favorites including Mary Kate O'Connell at The Park School, 4625 Harlem Road, presented byO'Connell and Company.

Closing on Sunday will be HELP! MY HUSBAND HAS GONE MISSING; MY DAUGHTER IS GETTING MARRIED & I AM HAVING HOT FLASHES at Shea'sSmith Theatre, tonight at 8, Saturday at 2 & 8, and Sunday at 2 & 7.

Looking down the road we note that FARRAGUT NORTH (a stop on the Washington Metro) is a play about Howard Dean's failed bid for the presidency, and will be at Road Less Traveled Theatre.  And WAIT UNTIL DARK is a thriller at the Kavinoky. Both plays open at 7:30 p.m. Friday April 29 at their respective venues.
