City Circle - If you are planning to check out the Circle's Edge Repertory Festival this weekend, you need to know that the location has changed. Apparently, the Fire Marshall and Building Inspector for the City of Coralville informed the people that rented City Circle the space in the Iowa Realty and Wells Fargo Building that renting the space for a theatre peformance was a violation of code. Consequently, City Circle has had to find alternate venues for the the final weekend.
I am sure no one reading this will be surprised to learn that we are a theatre community that pulls together when faced with adversity. Thanks to individuals who wholeheartedly believe the shows must go on, we can announce that on Thursday, April 16 and Friday, April 17, at 7:30 p.m., Rabbit Hole will be performed in the former That's Rentertainment space at 411 2nd Street on the Coralville Strip, which most recently housed the Johnson County Republicans and is located directly across the street from Mondo's Sports Café.
On Saturday, April 18, Sarah Shattered (4:30 p.m.) and Picasso at the Lapine Agile (7:30 p.m.) and will be performed at Theatre B in The University of Iowa Theatre Building.
On Sunday, April 19, Picasso at the Lapin Agile (2 p.m.) will also be performed at Theatre B.
As a result of the move, the reading of Sarah Shattered on Sunday, April 19, 4:30 p.m. has been canceled. Otherwise, all show times will be presented as previously announced.
A review of Picasso is here. A review of Rabbit Hole is coming soon.
