In “Bing,” the ozone layer has been burned away and suicides have left most people orphaned. But rock ‘n’ roll messiah Cherry ventures into the Oz-like compound, Sparkling City, to try to save the universe. Because of adult content, “Bing”may be inappropriate for children under 17.
“Little Eyolf,” one of Ibsen’s least-known plays, is the story of a toxic marriage of Alfred and Rita, whose union is pushed to its limits amid the forests and waters of the Norwegian fjords.
