Stage Pick: The Arsonists by Capital Stage
Capital Stage premieres a brand-new play this week, The Arsonsists, by Jacqueline Goldfinger, an up-and-coming playwright (winner of several prizes) from Philadelphia. The Arsonists is a Southern Gothic-style play-with-music, with a nod to the ancient Greek tragedy Electra. The setting is a mysterious Florida swamp, where a father/daughter team work together as singers, storytellers… and firebugs, hiding from the law. Wed 7pm, Thu 7 pm, Fri 8pm, Sat 2pm & 8pm, Sun 2pm. Through 4/15; 25-$40; Capital Stage, 2215 J Street; (916) 995-5464; capstage.org.
