THE MARRIAGE OF BETTE AND BOO

FRIDAY, JAN. 22–SUNDAY, JAN. 31, RALEIGH

NORTH RALEIGH ARTS & CREATIVE THEATRE—That's not the Stage Manager from Our Town interrupting the nuptials at the start of this deranged dark comedy. It's the happy couple's soon-to-be son, Matt. He's seen the future, and the news isn't good. Matt's our host in Christopher Durang's semi-autobiographical farce from 1985, and he leads a guided tour through three generations of a uniquely twisted family tree. Critic Robert Brustein called the result "a remorselessly sad, achingly funny assault on the vanities, inanities and insanities of family life." At NRACT, Jonathan McCarter directs a cast including Danny Mullins, Liz Webb, Ryan Ladue and Hannah Rose Miller. 8 p.m. Thurs.–Sat.; 3 p.m. Sun., $10–$17, 7713-51 Lead Mine Road, Raleigh, 919-866-0228, www.nract.org. —Byron Woods
