Veteran VT actresses Lynne Buhle and Nancy Denton
This weekend’s MainStage performances of Hair and
The Alter Eagles are sold out, but no worries. You can come to our intimate black-box theatre across the hall for Martin McDonagh’s dark Irish comedy, The Beauty Queen of Leenane.
This intriguing look at a difficult mother/daughter relationship has been well received by critics and audiences alike. Here’s what people have been saying:
  • “Director Kelly Wynn Woodland and her cast present faithful and involving versions of these characters, as the dynamics of power (and our empathy or lack of it) shift back and forth between the two women.” ~ Kay Kipling
  • “In the small confines of the Pinkerton Theatre we almost feel like voyeurs, unable to turn away from this fascinating family dynamic.” ~ Jay Handelman
  • “A must see. The cast is fantastic!” ~ Andrea Bekkenhuis
  • “Bravo to the cast and crew of Beauty Queen at Venice Theatre! Disturbing and yet on the edge of reality.” ~ Sandy Davisson
  • “What an interesting, uncomfortable play. I wouldn’t mind directing it.” ~ James Alexander Bond
