The Last Days of Judas Iscariot
8 P.M. – 10:30 P.M., Production Workshop
Part drama, part comedy, “Judas” tells the story of one Purgatory-trapped lawyer on a mission to get Judas’ sentence reversed. Witnesses for the defense include a handful of apostles, Sigmund Freud and Satan, or Lou as he is familiarly called here. Throw in a sassy Saint Monica and a zealot or two and we’re good to go. Enjoy the laughs, debate the big questions at the Ratty tomorrow morning and try not to do anything else this weekend that will get you in this court’s docket. Free tickets available on the Blueroom and one hour before the show at the door.
BTS (Brown Taiwan Society) Nightmarket
8:00 P.M. – 11:00 P.M., Sayles Hall Auditorium
Well I’ve never been to a Taiwanese Nightmarket but if BTS puts together anything like this I’m sold. Food, fun ‘n games and performances from Tae Kwon Do, Badmaash, Impulse Dance Company, among others. Sounds like a deliciously fabulous evening.
I’m Still Here
Cable Car Cinema, 6:00, 8:10, 10:20
Casey Afflek makes his directorial debut with this documentary chronicling a year in the life of Joaquin Phoenix. The film starts a few months before Phoenix’s memorable announcement to retire from acting and devote himself to becoming a hip-hop musician on Letterman. Whether it tells the true story of a tortured artist or is a hoax from start to finish is up to you to decide.
