Get Dahl-ed Up

roalddahl.jpgWe have read enough Roald Dahl to be instantly sold on anything influenced by him or based on his work. He could certainly knock out a mean children’s book, but this time it’s his adult content that is being adapted for the stage. Every Saturday from now through April 5, The Annoyance Theater is showing Georgy Porgy and Other Stories by Roald Dahl, using both video and the stage to interpret several of Dahl’s darker, mature-content short stories.

Again, this stuff is not for kids. If you are familiar with Georgy Porgy, William and Mary, and The Great Switcheroo, you would have kind of already come to that conclusion, and the theater’s website explicitly says this underneath the show announcement. Guess they want to make sure their audience will not be expecting another Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, so who can blame them.

4830 N. Broadway, 3/1-4/5, Saturdays 8 p.m., $15
