THE GLASS MENAGERIE
Opens Fri., Feb. 9 at the Willamette Repertory Theatre. I wrote my AP English essay on the complex web of possession, denial and despair in Tennessee Williams' most high-school-reading-material-appropriate play. But it's an adult play, without the sexual parts, but with tiny transluscent animals, alcohol and that whole momma owning her children thing. Woot! Show dates are Feb. 9-10, 15-18 & 22-25. Call 682-5000 for tix.
HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH
Opens Fri., Feb. 9 at the Lord Leebrick Theatre. Oh man. Oh woman. Oh the mysteries of gender, sexuality, love and rock 'n' roll. Based on the original play instead of the movie, starring Adam Goldthwaite and the Ovulators, this raw, incisive, kick-ass piece will truly rock your world. Show dates are Feb. 9-10, 15-17 & 22-24 and Mar. 1-3. Call 465-1506 for tix.
THE PLAYBOY OF THE WESTERN WORLD
Opens Thurs., Feb. 8 at OSU's Withycombe Hall. Irish, riot-producing and not about George Clooney. Show dates are Feb. 8-10 & 15-17. Call 737-2784 for tix.
