'The Blue Room' at Spotlighters


January 06, 2000|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Winning the rights to produce the area premiere of David Hare's Broadway and West End hit, "The Blue Room," is a bit of a coup for the Spotlighters, where the show opens tomorrow.

An updated adaptation of "La Ronde," Arthur Schnitzler's turn-of-the-century exploration of sexual liaisons, the play was originally performed by only two actors -- Nicole Kidman and Iain Glen (with Kidman's in-the-buff performance dubbed "pure theatrical Viagra" by one British critic). Director Bob Russell has cast 10 actors in the Spotlighters production, which will also include nudity and is intended for mature audiences.

Show times at the Spotlighters, 817 St. Paul St., are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays, through Feb. 6. Tickets are $10. Call 410-752-1225.
