And now a show for which I have been unable to devise any segue: An Evening of Steampunk Robot Comedy and Tragedy (September 24-October 10) at the PLAYERS’ RING. The rather enigmatic billing appears to include more a dozen live and online shorts, all presumably relating to, and I certainly hope starring, Verne-era retro-robots. Stay tuned for the full report.

Also on the fall horizon: Evita at LYRIC MUSIC THEATER (September 24-October 9); Indoor/Outdoor at the PUBLIC THEATRE (October 15-24); Seussical (September 10-26) and Steel Magnolias (November 5-21) at PORTLAND PLAYERS; and Beauty and the Beast performed by the ever-endearing youngsters of the CHILDREN’S THEATER OF MAINE (October 14-24).
