Actor travels solo 'Underneath the Lintel' at Venice Theatre Stage II
Jeremy Guerrero apparently likes working by himself. The actor who once starred in the Pulitzer Prize-winning “I Am My Own Wife” at Venice Theatre returns there as the star of Glen Berger’s one-man play “Underneath the Lintel.”
This time, Guerrero plays a Dutch librarian who becomes obsessed with finding out who returned a book that was 113 years overdue. He winds up traveling around Europe, exploring history over several centuries on a quest that also leads him through some Christian medieval folklore.
Florida Studio Theatre presented its own production of the play in 2008.
Guerrero is working with director Peter Ivanov, the founding artistic director of Theatre Works, who recently returned to Sarasota after working for many years as a theater professor in Colorado.
The play, which originally opened off-Broadway in 2001, runs today through March 30 in the Yvonne Pinkerton Theatre as part of Venice Theatre’s Stage II series. Tickets are $25-$28; $10-$15 for students. For more information: 488-1115; venicestage.com
