Comedies open October 27 at Adams State Theatre


Actors Eleanor Smith and Jonathan Andujar prepare for the "An Evening of Ionesco." The Adams State College Theatre Department's production features two classic absurdist one-act plays by playwright Eugene Ionesco. "The Bald Soprano," directed by Lauren Gibbons, and "The Lesson," directed by Brittany Chowning, are must-sees examples from the absurdist period that comically examine how words have become meaningless as we stop thinking for ourselves and only repeat what others tell us to think. From a president to a news network, who tells you what to think? The plays open at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 27, in the Xperimental Theatre and continue through October 31. Call 719-587-TIXX for reservations.
