I know it’s late notice but if you aren’t doing anything tonight, you might check out a staged reading by Deep Water Productions, a newish company that has been doing the occasional reading or event over the past year. “Wine in the Wilderness” sounds like an intriguing show and I would hope that Deep Water will be able to do a full production of it someday (NOTE: I just doublechecked and this staged reading will actually be performed tonight and tomorrow night at the Hickory Hill Community Center. Also note that the time is non-standard: 6pm!)
And even though there continues to be productions to see in town (“Night of January 16th” closes at Sycamore Rouge this weekend!), you might look into a trip northward to see Richmond native and still favorite Emily Skinner in Signature’s “Dirty Blonde” starting next week. It’s still hard for me to think of Emily as anything but that sweet, innocent and insanely talented teenager I first met over 20 years ago. I expect seeing her do Mae West would finally and permanently change that paradigm for me!
