Closing This Week

Mr. Marmalade
Lucy (Laura Faye Smith) is a four-year-old girl trapped in an abusive relationship with her imaginary friend. "Mr. Marmalade" (Tim True) lies, breaks play dates, and blows coke off the playroom table. It's a trip. Psychologically disturbing, malicious, hilarious... Marmalade is damn good stuff. AH Artists Repertory Theatre, 1516 SW Alder, 241-1278, Tues-Thurs 7 pm, Fri-Sat 8 pm, Sun 2 pm, 7 pm, through Nov 19, $15-40

The Pavilion
Third Rail Repertory's Pavilion is set at a high school reunion, where two former lovers see each other for the first time in 20 years. It's a great show. Well written, well conceived, and well executed. You won't find many nights at the theater more satisfying than this one. AH Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center, 5340 N. Interstate, 235-1101, Thurs-Sat 8 pm, $15-24
