WELCOME TO OUR weekly curated column. Feature photo: Lillian Castillo (as Constance Blackwood) and Tiffany Tatreau (as Ocean OConnell Rosenburg) from the cast of the Alliance Theatre’s Ride the Cyclone.

Opening this weekend

Ride the Cyclone. Runs May 1 – 26. Alliance Theatre. Shortly after boarding the Cyclone ride at a traveling fair, a broken front axle sends the teenagers to their tragic demise. While stuck in a sort of purgatory, a mechanical fortune teller invites each student to compete in a macabre contest with the prize of a return to the world of the living. Bewildered, the teens take turns sharing their stories, making a case for themselves. Ride the Cyclone is a wildly original new musical—part comedy, part tragedy, and wholly unexpected. Info on the Alliance Theatre website. Discounted tickets at PoshDealz.com.
