It’s a big week for Triangle Theatre, with Sonorous Road launching its last production, “Straight White Men,” in its current home (the company moves to the Royal Center across from Meredith College in June). Flying Machine Theatre Company returns from an eleven year hiatus to present an evening of spontaneous entertainment – that will be unique every night of the run – dubbed “Curious Accidents and Unintended Consequences.” Little Green Pig debuts their newest work, an examination of ugliness and beauty called “The Hunchback.” If you’re looking for something a little more Broadway, then DPAC’s got you covered with “Chicago.”
Get it while it’s hot!
