The Bluest Eye
Celebration Arts mounts an extremely well-done version of Toni Morrison's first novel, adapted by Lydia Diamond and directed by James Wheatley. On a spare stage, the tragedy of the Breedlove family (Carol Jefferson, KT Masala and Zarati Depaz) is narrated by the young Claudia (Brooklynn Solomon) and her sister, Frieda (Eliza Hendrix). Although the serious subject matter is handled compassionately, this is probably not suitable for younger children. Th, F, Sa 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 6/14. $8-$15.
