Live theater tends to be more thrilling than film, largely due to the heightened odds of seeing someone flub a line or deliver a stirring monologue while sitting in your lap. Vicariously live the free-wheeling thespian life with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get one ticket to see The K of D, an urban legend at the Adirondack Theatre Festival, held at The Charles R. Wood Theater in Glens Falls (a $35 value). The show begins at 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 25 and is recommended for audience members ages 14 and up.
A scintillating one-woman show, The K of D, an urban legend relays the story of a tragic accident that befalls a small town and the girl, skinny Charlotte McGraw, who gets caught in the middle. Actress Lesley Gurule, recently awarded an MFA from the University of Texas at Austin’s acting program, transforms voice, body, and eyeglass prescription to depict more than a dozen characters as she guides audiences to mysterious conclusions. Theatregoers who wish to silently thumb-wrestle throughout the 90-minute performance should purchase their tickets under one name so that they can be seated together.
