Triad Stage in Greensboro will present a virtual reading of “Jekyll” at 7:30 p.m. May 20 on Facebook.
“Jekyll” is a feminist take on Robert Louis Stevenson’s sinister novella, featuring Triad Stage actors Laura Bess Jernigan and Lalenja Harrington.
Jane Utterson has an impossible choice to make. On the one hand, she wants to help the authorities catch the brutal and dangerous vigilante who keeps attacking corrupt men in the dead of the night. On the other hand, she has a terrible suspicion her best friend, Jekyll, somehow might be mixed up in this mess — maybe it’s related to Jekyll’s latest science experiment?
Watch the reading at facebook.com/triadstage. You don’t have to have a Facebook account to watch.
Winston-Salem Theatre Alliance will present “Urinetown: The Musical” at 8 p.m. May 21-23 and 28-30 outdoors at 650 W. Sixth St. in Winston-Salem.
The musical is described as a story about “a Gotham-like city where a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom.”
The play is 1 hour, 40 minutes with no intermission and is rated PG-13 for adult situations.
Tickets are $25 at 336-723-7777 or theatrealliance.ws/box_office.
