ACT Theatre’s production of Tom Stoppard’s Rock ‘n’ Roll has gotten rave reviews since it opened October 9. The Seattle Times made note of its strong cast and the work’s “mature, empathetic humanism”; Seattle Weekly says it’s replete with “cerebral party favors.” Our own Steve Wiecking included it as a must-see Met Pick in our fall arts preview. This is your last weekend to check out Stoppard’s tale of rock and communism, which comes laden with references to Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones, Velvet Underground — and, of course, the poetry of Sappho. (This is a Stoppard play, what did you expect? High Fidelity?)
