THEATER

The Sunset Limited
Stage Left Theater, 108 W 3rd Ave, Various
The play involves only two nameless characters, designated "White" and "Black". Offstage, just before the play begins, Black saves White from throwing himself in front of a train. The title, The Sunset Limited, is derived from the name of a passenger train that travels from New Orleans to Los Angeles. All of the action takes place in Black's sparse apartment, where the characters go (at the behest of Black) after their encounter on the platform. Black is an ex-convict and an evangelical Christian. White is an atheist and a professor. They debate the meaning of human suffering, the existence of God, and the propriety of White's attempted suicide.

Spokane Symphony Classics: Debussy & Mahler
Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox, 1001 W Sprague, Sat, Jan 24 8-10pm; Sun, Jan 25 3-5pm
Claude Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun was a turning point in the history of music. One of the most famous openings in the orchestral repertoire is the piece’s magical flute solo, played by our own Principal Flute Bruce Bodden. Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 was a turning point for him. It has become one of the quintessential showcases for orchestra, where each player is a virtuoso. Alongside Debussy and Mahler is an exciting contemporary work by composer and nightclub DJ, Mason Bates, who blurs the lines between classical and electronica in Mothership.

Stage Left Theater, 108 W 3rd Ave, Various
Based on the provocative tale of suspense, horror and repressed sexuality, this adaptation gives the famous story yet another turn of its own. A young governess journeys to a lonely English manor house to care for two recently orphaned children. But she is not their first governess. Her predecessor, Miss Jessel, drowned herself when she became pregnant by the sadistic valet, Peter Quint, who was himself found dead soon after under mysterious circumstances. Now the new governess has begun to see the specters of Quint and Jessel haunting the children, and she must find a way to stop the fiends before it is too late. But one frightening question tortures the would-be heroine: Are the ghosts real, or are they the product of her own fevered imagination?

Spokane Symphony Classics: Beethoven & Schubert
Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox, 1001 W Sprague, Sat, Feb 28, 8-10pm; Sun, Mar 1, 3-5pm
It is dangerous to assume simplistic connections between the events in artists’ lives and the music they create. Schubert learned that he was seriously ill when he composed his colorful Symphony No. 8, the most romantic of  all his symphonies. Facing the news of his inevitable deafness, Beethoven was suicidal while writing his Second Symphony. Yet Berlioz remarked: “this Symphony is smiling throughout.” Magical and haunting textures alternate with extraordinary playfulness in the other-worldly masterpiece by Estonian Arvo Pärt. Scored for two solo violins, strings and prepared piano, it is a showcase for Principal Second Violin Amanda Howard-Phillips and Concertmaster Mateusz Wolski.
