Under Construction a theatrical collage doesn’t do the work justice, but it’s a start. Inspired by the markedly disparate styles of Americana master Norman Rockwell and no-holds-barred contemporary installationist Jason Rhoades, and expressed in mainly plotless vignettes held together by a lone narrator, the play unravels American culture from both ends. Meridith Crosley Grundei is directing Under Construction for a Naropa University MFA Theatre program student production, with musical help from her talented spouse, Gary Grundei; audience participation is part of the plan, so be prepared to tell secrets. The show premieres at 7:30 p.m. Friday, September 29, at Naropa's Nalanda Campus, 6287 Arapahoe Avenue in Boulder; performances continue Friday to Sunday through October 8. Tickets are $12, and seating is limited; find tickets and more information at eventbrite.com, or visit the Facebook event page.
