This North Coast Weekend

On Thursday (January 24) at 8 p.m., North Coast Rep opens David Mamet’s American Buffalo, directed by Michael Thomas, and featuring James Read, Joel Agnew and Josh Kelly. Director Thomas describes the play as a "fascinating study of the dynamic, puzzling and perhaps frightening relationships between three men who happen to be crooks." The play is intended for adults and contains strong adult language.  The run continues Fridays and Saturdays through February 16, with Sunday matinees on February 3 and 10 at 2 p.m.

Also beginning Thursdays,  Dell’Arte reprises Three Trees with Joe Krienke, Stephanie Thompson and Lauren Wilson.   Three down and out clowns become involved in a war.  My review of the 2011 performance is here--it was two years ago almost to the day.  "The show contains mature content. Recommended for adults and brave children 12 and older."  One weekend only, Thursday through Sunday at 8 p.m. in the Carlo.  In February, Three Trees travels to Sacramento for the American College Theatre Festival Region 7 conference.

  On Friday (the 25th), Ferndale Rep opens Songs for a New World, a  musical revue about emotions and choices by Jason Robert Brown. Directed by Dianne Zuleger, it features Alex Moore, Brandy Rose, Craig Waldvogel, Elena Tessler, Jessi Shieman, Jo Kuzelka, Luke Sikora and Qaiel Peltier. Live music is provided by Justin Ross & Laura Welch, keyboards; Tamaras Abrahms, percussion; Bobby Amirkhan, bass. It runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through February 17.

  On Saturday (the 26th), Redwood Curtain presents their annual fundraiser, a dinner buffet and live radio show, Zounds and Gagged, at Blue Lake Casino. Reservations: (707) 443-7688 or
