THEATER | 'The Agitators' 

Geva Theatre's most recent production, "The Agitators," sweeps audiences back to mid-19th century America and chronicles an unlikely friendship between two famous Rochesterians, Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony. Through abolition, the Civil War, and votes for women, the duo challenged one another — and the nation — to change the course of history. Geva commissioned playwright Mat Smart ("Tinkers to Evers to Chance") for this world premiere, which runs through November 12. Directed by Logan Vaughn, with Madeleine Lambert as Anthony and Cedric Mays as Douglass.

"The Agitators" is on stage through November 12 at Geva Theatre Center, 75 Woodbury Boulevard. Previews are currently underway, and the show opens October 21. Tickets start at $25, and show dates and times vary. 232-4382;
