Russian silent film becomes a musical


On Stage

March 09, 2000|By J. Wynn Rousuck

"Bed and Sofa,"director Abram Room's 1926 silent Russian film about a romantic triangle, was banned by Stalin, but eventually found not only an audience, but more recently, a voice, in the form of Laurence Klavan and Polly Pen's off-Broadway musical, winner of two 1996 Obie Awards.

The three-person musical makes its Baltimore debut at Fell's Point Corner Theatre tomorrow. Jeff Burch, Pebble Kranz and Bill Toscano star under Bill Kamberger's direction. An on-stage string trio, directed by Jane Rubak, will provide the accompaniment.

Show times at Fell's Point Corner Theatre, 251 S. Ann St., are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays, through April 9. Tickets are $15. Call 410-276-7837.
