Comedies open October 27 at Adams State Theatre

(10-22-2009)

Actors Eleanor Smith and Jonathan Andujar prepare for the "An Evening of Ionesco." The Adams State College Theatre Department's production features two classic absurdist one-act plays by playwright Eugene Ionesco. "The Bald Soprano," directed by Lauren Gibbons, and "The Lesson," directed by Brittany Chowning, are must-sees examples from the absurdist period that comically examine how words have become meaningless as we stop thinking for ourselves and only repeat what others tell us to think. From a president to a news network, who tells you what to think? The plays open at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 27, in the Xperimental Theatre and continue through October 31. Call 719-587-TIXX for reservations.
