Weekend theater offerings and local artists

Herb Stratford has this weekend’s Arts and Entertainment outlook.

The Rogue Theatre’s production of "King Lear" is on stage through May 13. The classic Shakespeare tragedy tells the story of an aging monarch who divides his kingdom between two of his three daughters before descending into madness. The Rogue’s intimate space is the perfect place to experience this timeless classic. Visit for showtimes and tickets.


A new program of Tucson’s Drawing Studio, is entitled "Inside the Artist’s Studio", which presents an in-depth look at iconic Tucson artists and their impact on our community. The first event in this series features Drawing Studio founder and long-time Tucson artist Andrew Rush. The event takes place at the Leo Rich Theatre at the TCC on April 26 from 6:30-8 p.m. Tickets are available at the TCC box office.


At the Invisible Theatre, their last show of season is entitled "Mr. Goldberg’s Prodigal Son". The play asks, "What’s the point of a family gathering, if the food isn’t good, the people aren’t loving, and a long-missing prodigal son doesn’t show up to disrupt the proceedings?"

It tells the story of three generations of the Goldberg family learning to accept one another, and fortunately, there are laughs, a moral or two, and some honest insights into what makes a family, a family! Tickets available in advance or at the door.
