March 10 Three Tall Women The Blue Barn Theatre, 614 S. 11th St. Thurs.-Sat. 7:30pm, Sun. March 20 at 6 p.m. and no shows March 25-27 $25 adults, $20 students, seniors, TAG members, or groups of 10 or more 345.1576, A perfect event in celebration of Women’s History Month, Edward Albee’s 1994 Pulitzer Prize-winning play Three Tall Women examines the truth of a woman’s life through the perspectives of three generations — one self-assured young lady, one middle-aged cynic and one proud elderly woman suffering from dementia. Though the story, said to be an autobiographical glimpse into Albee’s relationship with his mother, seriously examines the harshness of familial relations, love and death, and it is told with vicious comedy. Two-time Theatre Arts Guild Award-winner Susan Clement-Toberer directs along with a team of TAG winners, set designer Martin Scott Marchitto, lighting designer Carol Winser and sound designer Martin Magnuson. Fashion designer Jennifer Pool created the costumes for the small cast of four who will surely shine — stage vets Sonia Keffer, Ruth Rath, and Kristin Kluver and Chris Fowler in his debut role as “The Boy.”
