April 12, 2001|By J. Wynn Rousuck

AXIS Theatre wraps up its season of shows by women with Anne-Marie MacDonald's comedy "Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)." A modern-day woman is plunged into the worlds of "Othello" and "Romeo and Juliet" only to discover that Desdemona and Juliet are considerably different from expectations.

Bethany Brown plays Constance, the modern protagonist; Darlene Deardorff is Desdemona and Sharol Buck is Juliet, under Bian Klaas' direction.

"Goodnight Desdemona" has a pay-what-you-can preview at 8 p.m. next Wednesday. The play opens April 19. Show times are 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, through May 20. Tickets are $12 and $14, except opening night, which is $16. AXIS Theatre is at 3600 Clipper Mill Road. Call 410-243-5237.
