God on stage; Theater


Crises of faith seem to be all the rage on area stages these days. In addition to Heather McDonald's "An Almost Holy Picture," which opened last night at Center Stage, Rep Stage of Columbia will present the area premiere of Romulus Linney's "Ambrosio" for four weekends beginning tomorrow.

Loosely adapted from a 1797 novel called "The Monk," as well as from the history of the Spanish Inquisition, the play focuses on a charismatic 16th-century monk who is tempted to break his vow of celibacy. The production stars Nigel Reed and is directed by Kasi Campbell, resident director of Rep Stage, the professional theater in residence at Howard Community College.

"Ambrosio" will be presented in the Theatre Outback on the Howard Community College campus, 10901 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia. Show times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sundays, through Feb. 28. Tickets are $10-$17. Call 410-772-4900.
