Actors Group switches plays

By Wayne Harada
Advertiser Entertainment Writer

The Actors Group, premiering a pair of Christopher Durang one-acts, has shuffled the slate of plays premiering at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 13 at the Yellow Brick Studio, 625 Keawe St., in Kaka'ako.

TAG has dropped "A Need for Brussels Sprouts," and replaced it with "The Actor's Nightmare," and is retaining the earlier-announced "Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All for You."

"Nightmare" features Walter Eccles II, Eden-Lee Murray, Victoria Gail-White, John White and Stephanie Kuroda. "Sister Mary" stars Jo Pruden, Monica Kong, S. Rick Crump, Todd Savoian, Euphrosyne V.E. Rushforth and Michael Yasunaga.

David Farmer will direct.

The switch was necessary because one director had an acting call in London and the other is involved in two separate overlapping Windward productions.

The plays repeat at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 4 p.m. Sundays, through Dec. 8. Tickets: $10. Reservations: 591-7999.

Orchestra offers Duruflé's Requiem

Quinn Kelsey, one of the rising stars of opera, will be featured when the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra and Chorus will present the highly-touted "Requiem" by Maurice Duruflé's at 8 p.m. Nov. 23 at the Blaisdell Concert Hall.

Kelsey is back home from a summer with the San Francisco Opera's Merola Opera program, but moves shortly to Chicago for a one-year apprenticeship with the Chicago Lyric Opera.

The orchestra also presents Beethoven's "Prometheus Overture" and Mozart's "Symphony No. 35." Tickets: $57, $42, $32, $27 and $15. Charge by phone: 792-2000 (symphony box office), 526-4400 (Ticket Plus).
