The summer’s over and the long Labor-Day weekend has come to a close, which means it’s time for everyone to get back to work! Of course theaters have still been working all summer long getting the next season together for your enjoyment—and now its time to reap the benefits.
This week, Triad Stage continues with its hilarious comedy, The 39 Steps, which features four skilled actors performing as more than 150 characters. When a man gets mixed up with a beautiful secret agent, she ends up dead and he winds up on the run from a foreign power called The 39 Steps. The play runs through Sept. 28.
Wednesday, Carolina Theatre is hosting the last of its Skin Wars viewing parties in The Crown.

When the son of one of the men announces his marriage to a bigoted, right wing politician, the couple is tested, especially when having to parade around as “normal” to meet the bride to be. !
