Brelby Theatre Company specializes in cool yet nonreproducible experiences -- plays you’re unlikely to have seen before or see again soon. Be a Good Little Widow, through Saturday, February 22, comes from prolific seriocomic writer Bekah Brunstetter (Switched at Birth), whose works touch on implied time travel, extreme natural phenomena, the military, the Bible, The Oregon Trail, and today’s senseless tragedies bumping against vintage horror (or, as she wrote to TV producer Aaron Sorkin, “that tendency to Google victims harder and harder until you find out who they really were”).
Widow’s heroine, Melody, has never even been to a funeral and is still a newlywed when her husband dies. Her mother-in-law, however, is a veteran widow with plenty of know-how to share. Performances Saturday, February 8, are at 2 and 7:30 p.m. at 6835 North 58th Avenue in Glendale. Tickets are $10 to $20 at the door or www.brelby.com.
Fridays, Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Feb. 7. Continues through Feb. 22, 2014
