THEATER: Blue Door 

Friday, Feb. 11

Right on time for Black History Month comes playwright Tanya Barfield's Blue Door. The drama — with original music by Larry Gilliard Jr. — is making its thought-provoking way to the stage of Actor's Theatre of Charlotte with a heavy message: the importance of knowing your roots. In the production, Lewis, an African-American professor with a wealth of knowledge, is troubled by his own ignorance in regard to his cultural heritage. Luckily — and thanks to the disorienting effects of insomnia — he has generations of looming ancestors from all eras to step in and fill the need-to-know gaps to bridge his identity. Feb. 11-12, 8 p.m.; Feb. 16-17, 7:30 p.m.; Feb. 18-19, 8 p.m.; Feb. 23-24, 7:30 p.m.; Feb. 25-26, 8 p.m.; Feb. 27, 2:30 p.m.; March 2-3, 7:30 p.m.; March 4-5, 8 p.m. $15 during previews on Feb. 11 & 12; "Pay what you can night" on Feb. 23; $24-$29 for all other shows. Actor's Theatre of Charlotte, 650 E. Stonewall St. 704-342-2251. www.actorstheatrecharlotte.org.
