John Steinbeck's story of a cagey opportunist and his lummox pal Lennie traces through the Great Depression and the old, weird underside of the American dream of autonomy and making it big enough to be left the hell alone. Here Park Square stages the tale with an embarrassment of riches, in terms of local talent, and the prospect of watching Terry Hempleman and Zach Curtis tackle these iconic roles pretty much justifies the price of admission—and that's before learning that such talents as Warren Bowles, Carolyn Poole, and Steve Sweere are in attendance for supporting parts. Richard Cooke directs.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Nov. 29. Continues through Dec. 15, 2007
