This 1974 classic which called a choreopoem, was conceived just two years before Penumbra Theatre was born.

There he caught sight of the woman in black, the mere mention of whom terrifies the locals, for she is a specter who haunts the neighborhood where her illegitimate child was accidentally killed. Anyone who sees her dies! The lawyer has invited some friends to watch as he and the actor re-create the events of that dark and stormy night. A classic of the genre.

When it comes to something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue, few brides expect the something "old" to be an uninvited ex-lover.

Then -- like in any good farce -- the doorbell rings and all hell breaks loose. So much for perfect. Written by acerbic, manic, belligerent stand-up comedian Lewis Black, One Slight Hitch marches onto the stage at Point Loma Playhouse.
William Shakespeare had one son: Hamnet. The young boy never knew his famous father, but in this riveting tour-de-force from Ireland, Shakespeare's only son finally takes center stage.

In Hamnet, a commanding performance from a young actor confronts what it means -- and what it costs -- to be great. In this moving, meticulous, multimedia wonder, ambition clashes with family responsibilities in a way that rivals the stakes of a great Shakespearean tragedy. See Hamnet at Emerson Paramount Center in Boston.
