No Vampires Here
Despite the title, Len Jenkin's new play Port Twilight has nothing to do with Stephenie Meyer's teen vampirism-as-metaphor-for-sexual-frustration book series. Unless, that is, the cultural juggernaut is allegorically addressing alienation, that other facet of teen angst, with intertwining tales of mad scientists, a B-movie filmmaker, a homeless rabbi and an extraterrestrial maiden with dark humor and song-and-dance routines. Probably not, as it's hard to imagine a duvet cover or calendar sporting the licensed image of a team of lab-coated scientists doing the "Science Dance," or a wild-eyed rabbi raving about the Messiah. If only. Port Twilight, Or The History Of Science: A Chronicle of Folly, Wisdom, and Madness is performed 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays and 8:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through December 12 at the Undermain Theatre, 3200 Main St. Tickets ($15 to $25) are at 214-747-5515 or undermaintheatre.org.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8:15 p.m.; Wednesdays, Thursdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Nov. 7. Continues through Dec. 5, 2009
