Of the shows opening this weekend, these are the ones we want to see. These could be the best shows of the year or these shows could end up being terrible. As always we encourage you to chime in with your thoughts on our list and what shows you are seeing this weekend.
HIS CHOICE: A Lie of the Mind at Paragon
From the Paragon website: After a severe incident of spousal abuse tears Jake and Beth apart, their two families hole up to await the backlash. Set in rural California and Montana, Shepard’s classic road-worn characters become caught up in a deranged and piercing fable that renders open harsh realities of their familial dysfunction, loyalty and the nature of love.
Lie of the Mind was mentioned in our Summer foreCAST.

HER CHOICE: How to Succeed.. at PHAMALY
From the PHAMALY website: From the authors of “Guys And Dolls” comes one of the most delightfully irreverent musicals of all time. A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying” follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying” to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant “company man,” the boss’ whiny, nepotistic nephew, the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.

Not to Be Missed: Rear Window at Spark
From the Spark website: Welcome to classic film nostalgia meets theatrical storytelling Spark-style, where audience members sit inside the apartment of LB Jeffries, a world-travelling photographer re-cooperating from a broken leg from his last assignment. While holed up in his studio, Jeffries sees the comings and goings of all his neighbors, and when he swears he has evidence that would convict his neighbor of murder, his girlfriend, nurse, and the police are all caught up in a world that may just be one restless man’s delusions.
An adaptation based on the original Cornell Woolrich’s 1942 short story, “It Had to Be Murder”.
