The Medicine Peddler

When: Feb. 8-10 2014

The play action stops. The hero stands still, hands and hips torqued. He glares and, if he can, directs one eye across the bridge of his nose. This is a mie pose, the close-up of Kabuki theater. After a moment, the play continues, loud and flashy with fabulous costumes, music and acrobatics. Now, it's hard to predict exactly how the art form will translate in The Medicine Peddler, a student production about a samurai who goes undercover for revenge, but hey, when was the last time Kabuki was in Colorado Springs? Anyone? Catch a free performance today at 2 or tomorrow at 1, at CC's Cornerstone Arts Center (825 N. Nevada Ave., coloradocollege.edu). — Edie Adelstein
