If you're interested in bold, challenging theater, don't miss Morris Panych's "Lawrence and Holloman" at Folsom's Imprint Theatre. A dark comedy that starts off like an attenuated Vaudeville act, it follows Lawrence (Stephen Miller), an arrogant narcissist, and his wimpy sidekick Holloman (James Gilbreath) as the play's surprising trajectory slowly transforms both into the opposites of what they were.
Though the action tends to drag, the intensity and the production values are worth your concentration--and there are some gut-busting laughs along the way. Kudos go to the two actors for incisive performances and to director Kelly Archer and her crew for a memorable production.
The play concludes tomorrow (Saturday), with two performances at 1100 Blue Ravine Road, one at 2 p.m. and one at 8 p.m. For reservations and details, call (916) 627-6533 or see http://www.imprinttheatre.org/.
