What could possibly come of the strange collaboration between a tiny, six-legged creature whose ancestors walked with the dinosaurs, and an overworked, overwrought newspaper man in New York City? Adapted for the stage by Dan Gilvezan from the beloved columns by New York Evening Sun journalist Don Marquis, the tales of Archy, a cockroach with the soul of a poet, and his best friend Mehitabel, the “toujours gai” alley cat, remain as charming, poignant and relevant today as when they first delighted readers in 1916. Sept. 10–Oct. 15; $30; Whitefire Theatre, 13500 Ventura Blvd., Sherman Oaks, CA 91423; (818) 687-8559 or www.whitefiretheatre.com.
