More theater from More Theatre

October 01, 1998|By J. Wynn Rousuck

The latest addition to the Baltimore theater scene is an aptly named new company called More Theatre. Under the leadership of artistic director Aimee Blankenship and managing director Jennifer Roberts, More Theatre opens its debut production, "Leonardo's Last Supper," tonight at St. John's Church in Charles Village.

Written by British playwright and screenwriter Peter Barnes ("The Ruling Class" and "Enchanted April"), "Leonardo's Last Supper" is a dark comedy about a corrupt 16th-century undertaker and his family, who have fallen on hard times due to the end of the plague. The cast includes Jeff Roberts as head of the family business; Bethany Hoffman as his wife; Morgan Stanton as their ne'er-do-well son; Jason Yaffe as Leonardo Da Vinci, whose burial could reverse the family's fortunes; and Sharol Buck in the narrator role of the Lecturer.

Show times at St. John's Church, 27th and St. Paul streets, are 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Oct. 3 and 17, with a matinee at 4 p.m. Oct. 10, through Oct. 17. Tickets - in keeping with the company's commitment to make theater accessible to all - are $7.50. Call 410-685-6673.
