Theatre Pro Rata stages Mary Zimmerman's Tony Award-winning take on classical myth in a big pool of water, evoking birth, submersion, oblivion, and transformation: all of the things Ovid was going on about in the first place. The story cycle blends the modern with the ancient, putting gods in therapy (about time), and with the promise of a sea battle that might well require toweling off should you sit in the front row. The ensemble includes local talents Zach Curtis, Heather Stone, and Noë Tallen, and Carin Bratlie directs. Pro Rata has been on a winning streak in recent months, staging works with ample brains and style, so this one comes with an encouraging pedigree.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: March 21. Continues through April 6, 2008
