Back on stage: Rorschach and Cherry Red
Today's theater coverage in the Style section featured some welcome blasts from the past. Boundary-pushing companies Rorschach Theatre and Cherry Red Productions are both back on area stages with shows worth seeing.
Cherry Red has been focusing on film and other projects for the last couple of years, but it's returned to DC Arts Center with "Wife Swappers," an unhinged orgy with loads of nudity. Peter Marks calls the play "one of the wildest showcases in town." My take: Kris Roth's comic delivery and Lucrezia Blozia (aka Chris Griffin in drag) as an earnest widow alone are worth the price of admission.
Meanwhile, Rorschach, which we haven't seen 'round these parts since the summer of '09 (with a couple of exceptions), is taking inspiration from the potentially horrific stories of going home for the holidays for "Klecksography." If you're curious about the name, and the performance in general, Backstage columnist Jane Horwitz has the scoop.
Both shows are only around for a limited time, so snag a ticket quickly. "Wife Swappers" ends its run Saturday, and "Klecksography" will be at Flashpoint for four performances on Saturday and Sunday.
