'Foreigner' pays visit to Magna

The Salt Lake Tribune has given the Empress Theatre a little more ink today, complete with the photograph of the Foreigner cast you see here. Here's what they say about us:

Exotic or not: The Empress Theatre's production of the comedy classic "The
Foreigner" opens Friday, with the run continuing through June 9.
Larry Shue's play, directed by Porter Williams, is the story
of what happens when Charlie, a shy Brit, visits a rural Georgia fishing lodge.
Charlie is too depressed to mingle with other inn guests, which is why a story
is concocted to explain that he's from an exotic land and doesn't speak English.
Charlie inadvertently becomes the confidant of just about everybody in town -
which is how he comes to find out about a dangerous plan that has been set into
motion, and eventually, channels his resources to thwart it.
Curtain is at 7 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays. Tickets are $11 ($9
children, $10 students/seniors, $8.50 Mondays), available by calling 801-347-7373 or visiting The theater is at 9104 W. 2700 South in Magna.
