Set in the 1930s Soviet Union, John W. Lowell's play explores how artists were censored during Stalin's reign.
Alexandria theatergoers have fond memories of the old MetroStage on Duke Street. The theater lost the space a few years ago, and Carolyn Griffin, the producing artistic director, has spent most of her energies raising the funds for a new house. The company kept in the limelight by staging readings of new works, like "Water on the Moon," and a series of cabarets in the Alexandria Lyceum. Eventually, Griffin's fundraising and construction efforts succeeded and, in 2001, a new MetroStage was created out of the old Smoot Lumber warehouse, just off the water at the northern end of Old Town. With a design by architect Skip Maginniss, the space has been transformed into a 150-seat theater with a modern look.
