Asolo Rep's "Clybourne Park" is a triumph

  A complete review will be coming soon, but meanwhile we don't want to delay in very, very strongly recommending that you go see "Clybourne Park" at Asolo Rep. See it soon because you might want to it often.
  It's hard to praise this play and this production enough. The script is clever, hilarious in a very unconventional (and sometimes very uncomfortable) way, the acting's is sublime and natural and the sets are stunning.
  The story is in two sections, 50 years apart. In the first, it's 1959 and an all-white neighborhood gets nervous at the news that an African-American family is moving in. In the second, that same area has become predominantly African-American and residents are nervous because a white family wants to buy a house and start gentrifying the neighborhood.

   It runs through May 2 at Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Mertz Theatre, 5555 Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, 2 p.m. matinees April 3, 6, 10, 13, 18, 21, 25, 27 and 28; evening show 8 p.m. Tickets are $57-$73. For information go to asolo.org, or call 941- 351-8000. There's some pretty harsh language.
