“Mlima’s Tale”: Theatre Nova.
Every Fri.–Sun., Mar. 31–Apr. 23. Carla Milarch directs the Michigan premiere of Pulitzer-winning playwright Lynn Nottage’s 2018 tale of plunder and commerce in which the ghost of a murdered elephant haunts all who profit from its death. It’s a world in which we’re all unsettlingly connected and unconditional virtue is nonexistent. The New York Times reviewer called it a “visually inventive” and “transfixing,” work that “never feels sensational, on the one hand, or pious, on the other.” 7:30 p.m. (Fri. & Sat.), 3 p.m. (Sat.), & 2 p.m. (Sun.), Theatre Nova, 410 W. Huron St. Mask & proof of vaccination required. Tickets $22 ($10 for kids under 17) in advance at theatre-nova.ticketleap.com and (if available) at the door. 635–8450.
