A relatively quiet week onstage in the Triangle still affords audiences two very different experiences. Raleigh Little Theatre hosts dog n pony dc in “Beertown,” a devised piece that involves the audience in determining what objects should represent us in a time capsule. Culture Mill asks for a little more trust from its audience in “Trust the Bus,” in which spectators will be sent to an undisclosed location in order to take in the performance.
Fear not if more traditional fare is your preference – “42 Street” opens at DPAC. Something for everyone!
