Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play
Transylvania University Theatre brings Anne Washburn’s play, which was called “downright brilliant” by the New York Times, to the Lucille C. Little Theatre for a two-weekend run.

It plays at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 22 to 24 and March 1 to 3 and 2 p.m. March 4 at the theater on the Transy campus, 300 North Broadway. Visit Facebook.com/TransyTheater for tickets and more information.
