From Russian village to `Exodus' and U.S.

Best Bet

February 06, 2003|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Beginning Sunday, as its contribution to the city's Vivat! St. Petersburg festival, Everyman Theatre is presenting staged readings of Martin Sherman's one-woman show Rose, starring Vivienne Shub.

The play is an account of a Russian-Jewish immigrant's journey from a Russian village to the Warsaw ghetto, the ship Exodus and, eventually, the United States.

Shub, a member of the theater's resident company, was originally planning to perform Rose at Everyman last season but was sidelined by a slipped disk. Now, after undergoing physical therapy, she is back on track, and so is the play. Direction is by Everyman artistic director Vincent Lancisi.

Show times at Everyman, 1727 N. Charles St., are 7:30 p.m. Sundays-Tuesdays, and 2:30 p.m. Wednesdays, through Feb. 25. Tickets are $15 general admission; $13 for Everyman subscribers. Call 410-752-2208.
