Every time a friend of mine comes back from their first trip to New York City, there is always the ubiquitous playbill in their souvenir bag...always. This is because going to a Broadway play is something akin to the hajj in American cultural circles. Living in the Willamette Valley in the Pacific Northwest one might think that this sort of hoity-toity outing is hard to come by, but that is not the case. The fine thespians at the Albany Civic Theater have been memorizing their lines and abusing their understudies with zeal for weeks now to provide you with just the type of sophisticated evening or matinee afternoon that you have been pining over. And, you don’t have to buy a thousand dollar airline ticket to the Big Apple! Running through October 30th, Albany Civic Theater will be presenting Wait Until Dark by Frederick Knott. A dramatic thriller of the highest order. The

Broadway smash from the 60’s comes to life on stage at 111 First Ave. SW, Albany, Ore. The play has all the hallmarks of a great flash of entertainment; Heroin, Cops, Conmen and a blind but clever woman. Members of the original cast include the incomparable Robert Duvall. And, the film adaptation starred Audrey Hepburn, Richard Crenna and Alan Arkin. Impressive right? Bring your one handed binoculars, clapping gloves and etiquette (leave the mobile phone in the car) for a night of class and panache. Take your date out for a fine dinner and theater combination and become the gentleman or a gentlewoman we all know you are. Oh, and save the playbill. It’s proof of your mature taste in entertainment. One last thing for the guys—the cumber bun folds point up, or is it down? -Stanley Tollett
