Dances With Durang: Cockpit in Court presents Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, by the author of The Actor’s Nightmare, and it’s a theatre nerd’s dream. Cockpit in Court at CCBC Essex (formerly Essex Community College) presents Christopher Durang’s homage to Chekhov through August 6th at the Cabaret Theatre in the Robert and Eleanor Romadka College Center. This play has a morsel of everything— comedy,
Ten actors. Ten plays. Ten minutes. One stage. It’s happening right now in a theatre near you— the Fells Point Corner Theatre, to be exact. Appearing as a new revision to their annual tradition of a 10-minute play festival, this year four directors take ten actors across the course of ten different ten-minute one-act plays. Polished, poignant, and perfectly humorous, this bundle of shorts is perfectly palatable for those who prefer their theatre in quippy clips and devourable morsels.
Can you believe in something or relive something that never actually happened? Do you know how to live your life? The students involved with the Academic Theaters of CCBC certainly seem intent on proving that you can and that they do, and so too can you if you attend their current double-feature production of Edward Albee’s The Zoo Story and Pullman, WA written by Young Jean Lee. Directed by Julie Lewis,
