What does the enjoyment of a child's Popsicle have to do with the relationship of a mother and her daughter, or the invasion of giant white worms from outer space with a waltz? Well, seemingly nothing, but in art as in life, chocolate may aid understanding. James Maguire takes to the stage in an (almost) one-man production of his latest creation, Making Candy, in an effort to relate them all in one unifying message. His last production, Vibrating White Light, performed at the Orthwein Theatre, garnered admirable reviews, and we expect no less from this new performance. Though Maguire covers most of the speaking roles himself, he is joined by choreographer/dancer Sheila Rabbit and actor Christopher Lawyer in supporting roles. Making Candy plays this weekend and next at the St. Marcus Theatre, so if you're looking for innovative, interesting and inspiring locally produced drama, this is the place to be.
