This North Coast Weekend
A little late this weekend, but--At Redwood Curtain, Saturday is the official opening night of Kimberly Akimbo, a comedy by David Lindsay-Abaire. It’s Redwood Curtain’ s third Lindsay-Abaire play. “This playwright’s works are a perfect match for our uniquely twisted sense of humor,” said Artistic Director Clint Rebik. Adina Lawson plays Kimberly, with James Hitchcock, Elisa Abelleira, Peggy Metzger and Kody Dennis. (Photo at left.) Cassandra Hesseltine directs. The show continues Thursdays to Saturdays through July 30. Thursdays are cheap date nights. There’s one Sunday matinee, on July 24 at 2 p.m.
The Mad River Festival in Blue Lake continues this weekend with A Suicide Note from a Cockroach,a circus theatre spectacle performed by Pelu’ Theatre, a company based in Portland but rooted in Puerto Rico.Billed as putting a comic twist on being an immigrant in a U.S. city, it’s presented in Dell’Arte’s Carlo Theatre July 7-10 at 8 p.m.
