Eugene Weekly : Theater : 1.31.08

Opening Nights

Buying Time Opens at LCC’s Blue Door Theatre Friday, Feb. 1.

Doing pro bono work has, or so this work claims, become a miniscule part of most lawyers’ worlds. Is this right? What about a lawyer who’s pulled between making money for his firm and doing what’s right for the planet? When a timber company wants to log near the habitat of an environmentally threatened bird, its legal company has quite the decision to make. Sounds like a perfect quandary for Eugeneans! Show dates are Feb. 1, 2, 7-10 & 14-16. Tix available at 463-5761.


The Pink Panther Strikes Again Opens at the Cottage Theatre in Cottage Grove Friday, Feb. 1.

Dunh dunh dunh dunh, dunh dunh, dunh dunh dunh dunh dunh dunh … Oh yeah, you know the song. The Pink Panther song. But wait! This isn’t the cartoon version! This is Inspector Clueless Clouseau in all his glorious bumbling (Just a note: Shot in the Dark? Best Pink Panther movie ever.) Be ready for some physical comedy, some goofy gags, some general wackiness in this Cold War-era spoof of Serious Spy Movies. Show dates are Feb. 1-3, 8-10 & 15-16. Tix available at www.cottagetheatre.orgor 942-8001.


4:48 Psychosis Opens at the UO’s Arena Theatre Wednesday, Feb. 6.

Hey, it sounds like a light, funny play, no? Um … no. About depression, internal chaos and suicide, 4:48 Psychosis looks like a perfect play for gray February weather on a college campus. And this was playwright Sarah Kane’s last play before she hanged herself at age 28, but the more interesting info is the structure (or lack thereof, including any indication of how many characters should be in the play) in the script. How will grad student director Jennifer Thomas direct the seven women cast in the show? Find out for yourself. Show dates are Feb. 6-9 and 14-16. Tix available at 346-4363.
