THEATER

May 20, 1999|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Peter Shaffer's "Equus" is just about to prance away from the Olney Theatre Center, where director Jim Petosa's powerful production closes Sunday. Meanwhile, another production opens in Baltimore tomorrow at the Vagabond Players.

Directed by Barry Feinstein, the Vagabonds' version stars Christopher D. Carver as the troubled adolescent who blinds six horses and Joseph Moore as the psychiatrist who treats him. Although Olney chose to feature only one horse on stage, the Vagabonds' production will include the full complement of horses called for in the script. The actors portraying these animals will wear sculptured horses' heads, created by puppeteer Mary Jane Oelke; their movements are being choreographed by Binnie Ritchie-Holum.

Show times at Olney Theatre Center, 2001 Olney-Sandy Spring Road, are 8 p.m. today through Saturday, with matinees at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $15-$32. Call 301-924-3400. Show times at the Vagabonds, 806 S. Broadway, are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sundays, through June 20. Tickets are $10. Call 410-563-9135.
