Harbor Currents for Theatre & Film, May 23, 2012

May 24
Panache – Little Fish Theatre
This unpredictable, charmingly comic story seems to start out simply: Kathleen wants a license plate with the word “Panache” on it – but Harry has it. Nothing is as simple as it seems, however, and what begins as a ridiculous squabble over the seemingly unimportant turns into a desperate quest to salvage two lives. Starts at 8p.m. and runs from May 24-27. General admission is $25, seniors and students $23. Entrance and parking behind the theatre; access through alley between 7th & 8th Sts. Click to see review from Random Lengths News theatre critic, John Farrell.
