REDCAT: Rhode Island-based artist Tony Cokes’ Retro (Pop, Terror, Critique) is an ambitious new multichannel video installation that surveys the past 15 years of his work.

THEATER: A comedy written by William Saroyan and directed by Mary Lou Rosato. As the country prepares to enter a new world war, San Francisco is still recovering from economic turmoil. Joe sits in Nick’s Pacific Street Saloon day after day, always cynical, and always superior, However, as lonely as Joe is, he is never alone. The non-stop parade of quirky and touching characters that enter Nick’s Saloon one particular October day will set off a chain of events that will change not only Joe’s life, but the lives of all who surround him. William Saroyan’s love song to San Francisco and its working class won the 1940 Pulitzer Prize for drama, the New York Drama Critic’s Circle Award and its rank among American classics.
