Big Idea opens ‘Red Herring’

By From page B6 | August 15, 2012

Big Idea Theatre counts down to Friday, Aug. 24, the launch of “Red Herring” by Michael Hollinger and directed by Benjamin T. Ismail.

Combine a film-noir thriller, a murder mystery, and three love stories, and what do you get? One biting and witty play — a blunt-nosed, sharp-eyed look at marriage and other explosive devices.

The stellar cast includes Big Idea Company members Justin L Chapman, Katie Chapman, and Jouni Kirjola along with local talents Kelly Daniells, Elizabeth Holzman, Joelle Robertson, Caleb Salmon, Matthew Udall and Hilary Wells.

Performances are scheduled for 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays as well as 2:30 p.m. on Sundays through Sept. 15 at Big Idea Theatre, 1616 Del Paso Blvd. in Sacramento. Tickets are $15 general admission, $13 for SARTA, students and seniors with all “Thrifty Thursday” tickets $10.
