Chas LiBretto's play "Laodamiad" opens tonight at Schapiro Theatre (605 w 115th st) at 7:30. Directed by Hunter Bird and starring Kea Trevitt, Quinn Rol, and Don Burroughs. Hope some of you can make it -- it takes its inspiration from a fragmentary Euripides play called "Protesilaos." See if you can spot the Euripides lines!
