Details

Much Ado About Nothing Through November 5. $19-$58.

The Cook Through October 29. $26-$36.

Much Ado About Nothing Alley Theatre, 615 Texas, 713-228-8421.

The Cook Stages Repertory Theatre, 3201 Allen Parkway, 713-527-0123.

Mariana CarreŮo King's direction does little to smooth the rough edges of this difficult script, and the young cast is unable to make this group of stereotypes into full characters. The Cook might offer Americans who know little about the Cuban revolution some interesting insight into the politics and history of the movement, but the play's strokes are broad indeed.
