Noir and nostalgia.
Opens Friday, Oct. 10
It’s a safe bet that most people know the story of Wait Until Dark because of the 1967 film classic starring Audrey Hepburn as a blind woman tormented by confidence men and criminals convinced she is sitting on a fortune. But not everyone remembers that the story first saw life as a play by Frederick Knott in 1966. And now, American Theatre Company goes another step by setting this thriller in 1944 for a noir-ish makeover. The company opens Wait Until Dark at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center, 110 E. Second St., in downtown Tulsa for a two-weekend run starting Friday, Oct. 10. The play stars Norah Sweeney as Susan and features some of ATC notable veterans. The opening night performance starts at 8 p.m. Other shows are scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 11, and Sunday, Oct. 12 as well as times on Oct. 16-18. Tickets are $22-$26, available at www.myticketoffice.com.
