Olney does Arthur Miller
Arthur Miller's 1994 play, "Broken Glass," opens the Olney Theatre Center season tomorrow. Set in Brooklyn in 1938, the play focuses on a Jewish housewife afflicted with "hysterical paralysis," possibly caused by news accounts of Nazi atrocities in Germany, or possibly by problems in her marriage. Brigid Cleary and Edward Gero play the husband and wife under the co-direction of Jim Petosa and Halo Wines.
Show times at Olney Theatre Center, 2001 Route 108, Olney, are 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 7: 30 p.m. Sundays, with matinees at 2: 30 p.m. Sundays and selected Saturdays, and 2 p.m. selected Thursdays. Tickets are $23-$28. Call (301) 924-3400. Four years ago, the Maryland Stage Company, in residence at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, presented a group of short plays by Samuel Beckett in tribute to the playwright. Beginning tomorrow, the company will reprise two of those ("Not I" and "Ohio Impromptu") and add a third ("That Time") prior to performing them at the International Samuel Beckett Symposium and Festival in Strasbourg, France, at the beginning of April. The Maryland Stage Company, under the direction of Xerxes Mehta, is one of only two American troupes invited to perform.
Curtain times at UMBC Theatre are 8 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, Monday and Tuesday, and 3 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $10. Call (410) 455-2476.
