Isis Restaurant & Music Hall hosts the annual performance Wednesday, Nov. 25, at 8 p.m.
Nineteenth century Russian theater and 21st century satire come together for laughs and a dose of self-examination. The inspired meeting takes place in Attic Salt Theatre Company’s intimate production of Christopher Durang Tony-winning play, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.
The play is a day in the life of women who are not allowed to dream of more, or aspire to better lives. Some accept it, some protest it. There is no sense of their impending doom, which makes what is to come all the more unsettling.
Arrive at 6 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 14, for an early peek at auction items, or stroll into the Masonic Temple at 7 p.m., for the event’s official kickoff.
Hendersonville Little Theatre has a new name. It is now, officially, Hendersonville Community Theatre. The rebranding launched with a production of The 39 Steps, a classic Alfred Hitchcock thriller with an old-school vaudeville twist.
Christopher Durang’s Tony-winning comedy Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike opens Friday, Nov. 6 at 35below. Rivalries are sparked, regrets are voiced — and all of it may or may not have predicted by a clairvoyant cleaning woman.
Performances are Thursdays through Sundays, Nov. 5-21, at 7:30 p.m., at The BeBe Theatre, with proceeds benefiting Paws on ASD.
