American Idol For The Theatre: Strawberry One-Act Festival

strawberry.gifThe Strawberry One-Act Festival could easily be regarded as an American Idol knockoff: a theatre competition in which audiences and judges cast votes to declare a winning play. But the annual event has been around for ten years - long before Mr. Cowell and company interrupted our lives. Forty playwrights compete for the chance to have a full-length play produced, and in the process, theatre lovers get to discover fresh talent - and the occasional rotten tomato - from all over the country. Title simplicity prevails in A Play About a Guitar and A Play About a Mouse, while Post Inferno and Hell for Dummies are set for a Dante-themed showdown. Via flavorpill

Fri 8-5 - Sun 8-14 (Mon-Fri: 7 & 9pm / Sat-Sun: 3, 5, 7 & 9pm)
