THEATER | "That Poor Girl and How He Killed Her" 

The title "That Poor Girl and How He Killed Her" already sets things up. In the darkly comedic play by emerging playwright Jen Silverman, the wealthy, young Alyssa Long attracts the attentions of a cryptic stranger, Felix Maia, and Alyssa disappears soon after. The play explores the social workings of the world around us, from media to justice, in what Silverman describes as "'Gossip Girl' meets 'Lord of the Flies.'" The University of Rochester's International Theatre Program opens its spring semester with this work. Directed by Knud Adams. Original Music by Obadiah Eaves.

"That Poor Girl and How He Killed Her" continues Wednesday, March 8, through Saturday, March 11, at Todd Theatre, UR River Campus, 252 Elmwood Avenue. 7 p.m. each night. $15, general admission; $8 for UR students; $12 for alumni, faculty, staff, and seniors. 275-4088;
