A winning 'Drive'

A tip from ... J. Wynn Rousuck

May 31, 1998|By J. Wynn Rousuck

This year's 1998 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Paula Vogel's "How I Learned to Drive," wasn't eligible for a Tony Award because it wasn't produced on Broadway. But Baltimoreans have one week left to catch the play's Maryland premiere at Center Stage.

In this boldly singular drama, driving lessons serve as a metaphor for the inappropriate relationship that develops between a young girl and her uncle-by-marriage. But instead of labeling these characters good and evil, Vogel treats them both with respect. The result is a daringly disturbing yet entertaining work.

Show times at Center Stage, 700 N. Calvert St., are 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 7:30 p.m. June 7, with matinees at 2 p.m. today, Saturday and June 7. Tickets are $10-$40. Call 410-332-0033.
