theaters in the country through Tuesday (Feb.16) and I say people who can get to the Two River Theater in Red Bank (NJ) should jump on it.

Being staged is an all-female production of “I Remember Mama,”  Shakespeare’s “Pericles” set in a bar featuring an accordion with music and lyrics by Rinde Eckert, and a new translation of “Ropes,” by Barbara Colio about three sons of the greatest tight rope walker of all time searching for answers.

See. A new work by a leading Latin American playwright and new interpretations of classical work. What’s not to love?

Let’s be clear. I don’t work for Two River Theater but I do wholeheartedly admire a theater company that challenges its audiences. And I’m not saying you have to think really hard or pass a test.

Earlier this season 2River produced a straight-forward “Seven Guitars” and a very funny and creative all-male “Something Funny Happened on the Way to the Forum.” “Lives of Reason” wasn’t the regional theater’s most successful effort, but it was  a world premiere and too many theaters gravitate to the tried-and-true.

So, OK, you have until Tuesday night to get tickets up toe half price. Use the promo code: PRESIDENT. You can order online any time by clicking here. The box office is closed Monday for the holiday but open on Tuesday if you want to call 732-345-1400 or visit it at 21 Bridge Ave., Red Bank, NJ.  There are plenty of places to eat and Red Bank is a great place to practice your shopping skills.
