'Marie and Bruce'
Entering the late-night slot at The Empty Space Friday is "Marie and Bruce." Written by Wallace Shawn, whom you may recognize from, depending on your age, "My Dinner with Andre," "The Princess Bride," "Clueless" or the voice of Rex in the "Toy Story" series.
The play focuses on the trivial moments of married couple Marie (Faith Hall) and Bruce (Carlos Vera) on the day she plans to leave him. Confusion and pain are mined to comedic effect as the pair trade barbs both alone and in the company of friends.
This production also features Cody Ferguson, Shane Wright, Cheyenne Reyes and Danielle Velling.
Showtimes are 11:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 6 p.m. Sunday at the theater, 706 Oak St. Admission is $5 and no reservations are required.
