Rogue Theatre

Quirky, interweaving Japanese tales are rough silk onstage

In The Rogue Theatre’s latest, “after the quake,” two disparate works — one a comic book fantasy where a mousy hero saves Tokyo, unbeknownst to its residents, the other a gentle, seemingly tragic, love triangle — are threaded into a beguiling enigma of a play that eschews logic for a deeper, primal response. The production closes Sunday.... Read more»
