Local Notes

Saw Pig Iron Theater's Mission to Mercury this evening. Pig Iron's always a lot of fun, blending theater, dance, vaudeville, music, song, puppetry, whatever in inventive fashions to create an interesting work. Essentially they put everything in the toolbox in front of them and pull out whatever might work. Their pieces don't always add up to more than the sum of their parts, but they're usually at the very least worth seeing for their unique creativity. And at their best it's all a bit magical.

As for Mission to Mercury, if an evening of bizarrely arranged Queen songs sounds like your cup of tea, then try to a grab a seat for one of the few remaining performances.
