Naked Stage

The cast of The Naked Stage production of “Other People’s Money,” (L-R) Director Patricia Guy, Meredith Miller, Susan Quiriconi, Johan Dirkes, Don Beaudreault and Chris L’Ecluse are all set for their debut Friday-Sunday, June 23-25. Written by Alvin Sargent, the play focuses on a Wall Street raider who threatens a “mom and pop” company with a hostile take-over. The patriarch of the company is faced with the task of protecting his company, his family and his employees while maintaining his integrity. He gets help from his daughter, a lawyer, who enjoys the thrust and parry of a legal battle with the raider, who tries to win her heart as well as her company. The play asks the question: Are corporate raiders monsters of capitalism or realists? The curtain goes up every day at 4 p.m. at The Naked Stage Theatre, Hidalgo 261, in Riberas del Pilar. Entrance is 100 pesos.

The showing at the ground floor gallery continues through July 15. The title “Chivito al Precipicio” (little goat on the precipice), is taken from a slang term for a certain sexual position, reflecting the erotic themes of some of the artist’s works.

Music. Power. Jealousy. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy it. Seized by obsessive jealousy, he begins a war with Mozart, with music and, ultimately, with God.
