Rooted heavily in 9/11 theories, the play takes off when Adam reveals he's writing his thesis on conspiracy theories, leaves for a meeting with a professor in Washington, D.C., and then disappears. "We love this play," says Malik. "It's smart and moves at a good speed." As a National New Play Network Continued Life Project, Yankee Tavern has a "rolling premiere" tonight at 8 p.m. at Curious, its second stop on a four-stop tour that includes Florida Stage, the New Jersey Repertory Company and the Actor's Theatre of Charlotte; the Denver run continues through October 24.
Curious is at 1080 Acoma Street; tickets for Yankee Tavern are $18 to $42. For more information, call 303-623-0524 or go to www.curioustheatre.org.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Sept. 10. Continues through Oct. 24, 2009
