THEATER | "The Presstitutes" 

When he's not penning columns or chasing down stories for the Democrat and Chronicle, it's safe to assume reporter David Andreatta is whittling away at a theater project of some sort. Andreatta has spent a fair share of time on local stages, but he's also a prolific playwright — good enough to make Geva Theatre Center take notice, in fact, and help him develop a script. His latest endeavor is "The Presstitutes," a play about a Western New York newspaper staff that's undergoing the transition to digital, and a dark horse politician, each "striving for relevancy." While the story is set in Buffalo, Rochester audiences can expect that Andreatta will draw on what he knows. The play features a local cast directed by Jeff Moon and is presented by Everyone's Theatre Company.

"The Presstitutes" runs Thursday, July 7, through Sunday, July 10, at MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue. 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday; 1 p.m. on Sunday. $15 advance ($20 at the door) general admission; $10 advance ($15 at the door) for students and seniors. 727-1373;
