Thankfully, it's back. "High Noon at the Rialto" resumes Saturday, Oct. 12 with Roar Lions! Roar!! In T. Cat Ford's script, a university production of The Bacchae collides with varsity football in an exploration of the power of language. Regional newcomer Joe Megel directs.
On Nov. 9, it's the New Millenium, and Elian Gonzalez has grown up to become the new Cuban dictator--and a minor divinity to boot. The world is different now, populated by false prophets, deadly paparazzi and a bizarre Mormon faith healer. Director Joe Megel returns to direct The Brat Monologues, an intriguing one-person show by Guillermo Reyes.
Finally, it's Dinner with Jobita and La Chacha, in which a grandmother and her cranky domestic servant prepare a Caribbean meal on stage while reminiscing about lives and losses during a visit by Jobita's family. Jose Ochoa, another regional newbie, directs. Dinner is served Saturday, Dec. 7.
