Phone: 919-452-2304
Price: $5-15

Audacious and funky adaptations of the classics are a major part of Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern's reason for being. That said, its season opener, Richie, clearly has the potential to set a new standard for a company that regularly visits the extreme.

Director and adapter Jay O'Berski (who previously transformed A Streetcar Named Desire into a N'awlins zombie flick and showcased underexposed stage artists in an all-African-American Cherry Orchard) opts to place Shakespeare's Richard II among the seedier upscale Eurotrash at Cannes. What's more, this all-female production is presented during a pub crawl: Scenes take place in bars up and down Rigsbee Avenue and Foster Street.

The show begins with the first round at Fullsteam at 7:30 p.m. Performances are Thursdays–Saturdays through Sept. 22. Tickets cost $5–$15 (drinks not included), but something tells me this run is going to sell out soon; visit Want a taste of what you're getting yourself into? Check the video trailer at —Byron Woods
