Critic's Choice

Mini-reviews of stage productions by Advertiser theater critic Joseph Rozmiarek

"Hawaii Tales for Young People": The Honolulu Theatre for Youth hand-puppet show unlocks the imaginations of preschoolers with stories by Kimo Armitage. At 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Saturday (sign-interpreted performance at 1:30 p.m.) at McCoy Pavilion. Tickets: $12 general, $6 for ages 18 and younger and over 60. 839-9885.

"Morning's At Seven": God's in his heaven and all's right with the world, despite 50 years of family intimacy threatening to dissolve overnight. Excellent ensemble acting makes this domestic comedy a real treat. At 8 p.m. today and Saturday, 6 p.m. Sunday, Hawai'i Pacific University's Windward campus. Tickets: $14 general, $10 seniors, military, students, HPU faculty/staff, and $5 HPU students. 375-1282.

"The Weir": An evening of ghost stories leads to deeper revelations in this monologue-based blend of blarney and Chekhovian melancholy. Excellent set and performances make us feel like we're in an Irish pub. At 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday at the Yellow Brick Studio, 625 Keawe St. Tickets: $10. 722-6941.
