THE CRUCIBLE
THURSDAYS-SUNDAYS, MAY 9-12
BRÜKA THEATRE – 99 N. VIRGINIA ST. – DOWNTOWN RENO

 

The Crucible.  In a small American town, a group of young girls are found dancing in the woods, and mysteriously fall ill.  When no earthly cause can be determined, the citizens suspect that a more sinister force may be at hand.  Long‐held grudges turn to violent disputes, humiliating secrets are exposed, the line between truth and pretense becomes increasingly blurred, and the citizens’ dogged determination to root out evil turns more deadly than the Devil himself.  Everyone is suspicious and no one is safe. Arthur Miller’s remarkable 1953 play, remains as relevant as ever and carries with it a stern warning about what happens when we lose our humanity and sell our souls to save ourselves. The Crucible plays through May 18 on select days.  Visit Brüka.org for more details and advance ticket sales.

THURSDAY-SATURDAY, MAY 9-11 (7:30 pm)
GOOD LUCK MACBETH THEATRE – 124 W. TAYLOR ST – MIDTOWN RENO

 

MacBeth Theatre Company presents its current creative production, Equus through Saturday, May 11.  Equus is a psychological puzzle that leads both a doctor and a patient to a complex and disturbingly dramatic confrontation, so if you’ll looking for comedy, you probably won’t find it at Equus.

Reno has a fantastic new restaurant, and I had the pleasure of dining there just this week!  Lá Mint Vietnamese Kitchen is officially one of my new favorite dining establishments!  Their story:  “It’s been said before that the best way to share one’s culture is through eating each other’s food.  Lá Mint’s story starts with a burning desire to let people in Reno know that Vietnamese food is more than just Phở.  We wanted the opportunity to bring other classic Vietnamese dishes and introduce them, to show the variety of flavorful dishes that many people do not know about.  We want Lá Mint to become like a home for your Vietnamese food cravings.”  Cap off your experience with some of the friendliest service you’ll experience, and you may find Lá Mint to be one of your new favorites too!  For a look at their menu, visit La-Mint.com.  Chúc mừng (translation: Cheers!)
