Ulysses' Crewmen: 8 p.m. Curtain Today at Gone Wired Cafe

The Milwaukee-based Insurgent Theater has been winding its way through the Midwest with its performance of "Ulysses' Crewman." Today, Sept. 22nd, it arrives in Lansing, Michigan, for an 8 p.m. curtain at Gone Wired Cafe. The performance is free and open to the public, though the Peace Education Center welcomes any donations to help the effort.

I've been looking forward to the performance for a while now. The troupe's blog, documenting the behind-the-scenes details at each stop along the way, is very interesting and adds to the anticipation. The venue -- the room at the rear of Gone Wired -- is perfect for this show because the audience sits right in the middle of the performance. Expect a very intimate theatrical experience.

I plan to get there a little early, grab a cup of coffee from Colleen, and get a good seat. Theater fans and activists -- hope to see you out there.
