Phoenix Theatre’s annual Caleb Reese Festival of New Plays and Musicals provides protracted catharsis and amusement through Saturday, May 13. Fresh work has been whipped into the shape of two cabarets, staged readings of five full-length scripts, and a program of six short plays. It’s easy to simply jump in, but promo materials do suggest a couple of points of interest, including: • Metaphorical Shoes, a title that brings to mind their tendency to be on the other foot, be worn if they fit, and await dropping, and • We Should Kill Caesar, which eerily parallels current issues. The fest commences Friday, May 5, with Community, a play that ponders whether racism or amateur theater is worse, and The Things We Do, by former Arizona Attorney General Grant Woods.
