An evening at the Rogue Theatre is like an event Off Broadway both in terms of setting and content experience. The theatre is located in the historic YMCA building, near the University and the 4th avenue marketplace shops. We have seen several productions at the Rogue over the last couple of years that stretched the bounds of the usual local theatre productions. Last year's ambitious production of Mother Courage incorporated an original musical score into the thought-provoking storyline. Metamorphosis was also an unusual treat for a Kafka property. I really didn't think I would enjoy this play, but the staging and ensemble execution was unique and engaging. I think one of the benefits of the Rogue is their strategy to develop an ensemble that works well together. They also have an optional analysis of the production after the show to provide additional insight into the productions. I'm looking forward to this year--particularly the Shakespeare productions and Dante's Purgatorio.
