Roses in December
Tonight @ the Boulevard Theatre - 8 p.m.
Jan. 10, 2009
Produced in the intimate confines of the Boulevard Theatre’s storefront space on South Kinnickinnic Avenue, the company’s latest production, Victor L. Cahn’s comedy Roses in December, stars Anne Miller as a graduate student attempting to persuade an accomplished author (played by David Ferrie) to correspond with her. It is established early on that the author in question is a traditionalist who works without the aid of a home computer. Without today's usual e-mails and text messages, the correspondence is confined to letters sent through the mail, so the resulting 90-minute story is a strange hybrid of writing, reading and speaking. Tonight’s performance is at 8 p.m.
