Prologue Theatre is putting its own stamp on a play that has acquired a huge cult following over the years, especially within the LGBTQ+ community. Bristling with edgy, memorable performances, the cast takes you right back into the hell of those teenage years, when hurting people, both physically and emotionally, is done as casually as ordering a latte or chucking a tater tot across the cafeteria.

'Just listen. That's what I want,' thoughtfully states actor Max Wilson playing CB inDog Sees God, a progressive, contemporary play taking major forward-thinking steps at Roxy's Downtown in the Wichita theatre dramaturgy. This simple request for the audience is a difficult one to adhere to in spite of the heavy topics that are presented in the production. Themes of bullying, drugs, partying, sexuality, gun violence in schools, teen pregnancy and overall teenage carnage are some of the harsh realities these famed Charlie Brown characters face and must figure out how to endure.

Why is theatre important? That is a question that everyone answers differently. For me, it is important because it is an artform that pushes us to examine ourselves and pushes us to have a dialogue about things that we might not talk about in our every day life. For me, Des Moines Young Artist Theatre's production of 'Dog Sees God' by Bert V Royal does that. It asks us to look at issues such as drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity. What makes this show special is that it does it by using characters that seem like they might be characters that are near and dear to our hearts.

The most striking observation about Mark St. Germain's two-character play a?oeDancing Lessonsa?? is that its main characters spend more time palavering and less time learning how to dance. The story revolves around a socially awkward young science professor who, one day, hires a professional dancer to be his dancing coach. The guy, Ever Montgomery (Randy Villarama), is scheduled to attend a prestigious award ceremony, which may require him to socialize among guests and peers and, worse, dance with someone in public. You see, for most people, this situation hardly poses a dilemma, but with someone diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome like Ever, this is too daunting a task to be taken just sitting down.
