Théâtre du Rêve reprises its popular Vive la Fontaine!, a whimsical retelling of nine fables by Jean de La Fontaine (1621–1695) — in French and English — for humans of all ages. Expect a Cajun song, a puppet show, a sportscast and a punk-rock number. Seriously. It opens Friday, March 13, at 7 Stages in Little Five Points. $10–$25 and available HERE. NOTE: THIS SHOW CLOSED AFTER ITS OPENING WEEKEND DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS.
Put the incandescent Paula Vogel drama Indecent on your must-see list. Her 2017 “play within a play” opened March 7 at Theatrical Outfit and likely will sell briskly. It resurrects and re-examines Polish–Jewish scribe Sholem Asch’s extremely controversial early-20th century work God of Vengeance, which brought charges of obscenity for all involved. The Outfit’s multitalented ensemble breathes life into dozens of diverse characters who dance, sing and play instruments. Through March 29. Our review.
