CPT's Big Box Closes With a Bang

When: Sun., March 6 2011

Two provocative plays close out the current season of Big [BOX], Cleveland Public Theatre's award-winning residency program focused on the independent artist. The first, Voice Over, is a collaboratively written, one-act theater piece conceived and directed by Pandora Robertson. Approximately 50 minutes in length, it features five Cleveland actors delivering deeply personal monologues that are then reinterpreted by the ensemble in ways that challenge the audience's assumptions. The second, Side Effects May Include, was authored by former Seinfeld writer Marc Jaffe and Cleveland playwright Eric Coble, and serves as a one-man vehicle for examining such issues as sex, pills, aging, and whether or not our personalities are anything more than chemical reactions inside our brains. This weekend's final performance is at 3 p.m. today in the James Levin Theatre. Tickets are $15, with discounts for students and seniors. Snag them at 216-631-2727, online at, or pick them up at the box office, at 6415 Detroit Ave. in the Gordon Square Arts District. — Cicora
