Playwright Stephen Belber, who is having a busy season Off Broadway, will see his Finally mounted at the Blue Heron Arts Center this spring. The show follows recent stagings of Belber's Tape both in New York and Los Angeles.
Finally, which begins April 23, was one of the hits of the 2000 New York International Fringe Festival. The terse, "Roshoman"-like one-act tells the story of a murder from four points of views, including those of the perpetrator, his wife, the victim and...a dog, who turns out to be the most sensitive of the bunch.
Lucie Tiberghien directs Katie Firth, who plays all four roles.
Finally is paired with Mother of the Bride, written and performed by Dave Mowers. The play "recounts his experiences leading up to the weddings of his boyfriend's adult daughters." Christian Parker directs. Opening night for both plays is April 28.
The Blue Heron is located at 123 East 24th Street, between Park and Lexington. Single tickets for each play are $15; tickets for both shows are $25. For reservations and information, call (212) 560-7284. —By Robert Simonson
