Shakespeare is covered, with AS YOU LIKE IT at Brown University Theatre and THE TAMING OF THE SHREW at URI Theatre on the same dates (March 3-13). Pastoral comedy or domestic comedy, or both, your choice.

At other schools, Providence College Theatre is staging THE SWEETEST SWING IN BASEBALL, by Rebecca Gilman (February 3-6) and David Lindsay Abaire's FUDDY MEERS (February 11-13). The first is about the fragility of celebrity, and the second is a dramedy about a woman who wakes up each morning not knowing who she is. Upping the ante on the theme of identity crisis should play well with this audience demographic. MARK NIZER 3D LIVE will be at Rhode Island College on March 10, incorporating juggling, music, and high-tech.

At Roger Williams University Theatre, LUCKY STIFF, a musical farce based on the 1983 novel The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo, by Michael Butterworth, is coming February 25-27 and March 3-5. An English shoe salesman is left $6 million by an uncle he never met, on the condition that he escort the man's corpse on a vacation in Monte Carlo. Of course, once there, life doesn't remain quite that fortunate.
