Like riddles? Like rabbits? You’re in luck, because B Street Theatre is showcasing White Rabbit Red Rabbit, an experimental show originally conceived and created by Nassim Soleimanpour. Every night, a new actor takes the stage and is handed a sealed envelope with a script. With no prior knowledge or preparation, they read the script to an equally confused audience, allowing the mystery to unfold in real time. There probably won’t be any actual rabbits, but semi-retired company member Kurt Johnson is returning to the stage Wednesday exclusively for this, and isn’t that just as good as petting a small, fuzzy-eared bun bun? Don’t answer that.
