Theatre Eclectic, Bossier Arts Council, presents Ma Rainey, Albert Einstein, CS Lewis and a 19th century physician Fri, June 3, and Sat, June 4, at 8

Theater Eclectic offers a dramatic visit with these historic characters Friday, June 3, and Saturday, June 4, at 8 pm: a nineteenth century physician, played by Eugene Crook, blues singer Ma Rainey, portrayed by Thelma Harrison, Albert Einstein, actor Robin Jenkins, and author CS Lewis, brought to life by director Richard Folmer.

Narnia and the CS Lewis classic The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, are being brought to the screen, as they say, by Disney this year. Thus fresh readings of Lewis' enchanting prose should commence. And a visit with the author would be in order, would it not?

Call the Bossier Arts Council at 741-8310 for tickets.

In April the East Bank Theater presented Starry Night, the debut of a play by Los Angeles screenwriter Paul Davids. Directed by Richard Folmer and starring Jamie Sanders, the play was about the life of Vincent van Gogh. See a retrospective on Starry Night at Shreveport Two.
