Strangers on a Train
Sacramento, CA 95816
Directed by Elizabeth Nunziato, this adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s famous piece about two guys on a train who agree to murder each other’s “problems” (one’s father and the other’s wife) is a winner. Guy (Dan Fagan) hits all the Oedipal notes, while Charles (Eason Donner) is suitably hesitant; a stellar supporting cast pulls it all together. F, Sa 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 10/9. $13-$15. Actor’s Theatre of Sacramento at the California Stage, 1723 25th St.; (916) 501-6104; www.actinsac.com.
