Opening: The Mandrake at A Red Orchid

Tix available here. From A Red Orchid, my home base:

Callimaco loves Lucrezia, Lucrezia is married to Nicia, Nicia wants a baby… enter Ligurio and add a corrupt priest, the doting mother and the root of the mandrake to make for an extraordinarily complicated and hilarious plan. With everyone behaving so badly, can anyone possibly win?

Featuring A Red Orchid Ensemble Members Lance Baker (Ligurgio), Steve Haggard (Callimaco) and Doug Vickers (Messer Nichia), with David Chrzanowski (Friar Timoteo), Brian Kavanaugh (Siro), Cheyenne Pinson (Lucrezia) and Lucinda Johnston (Sostrata).
