You can count on two things from a classic Greek tragedy: death and weeping. Expect more in this interpretation of Antigone by Larry West. Just as in every performance before it, Antigone commits suicide after she is imprisoned for trying to give her traitorous brother a proper burial. But see this play for what is says about today. West says the Arab Spring inspired him to do away with the traditional Greek costumes, bring in modern choreography, and update the translation. From a play more than 2,500 years old, expect to see how Antigone's rebellion is both timely and timeless. Sat 2 p.m.
