The Carnegie Center in Covington has been presenting some exciting theatrical productions for several seasons, mostly by collaborating with partners who have their own credibility in the local theater world. Producer Joshua Steele reached out a little farther this time, connecting with Dayton's Human Race Theatre Company for a world premiere of a taut psychological thriller, Michael Slade's "Under a Red Moon."
The show played at the Loft Theatre in Dayton earlier in October; this week it moves to Covington where it opens on Friday. In the same vein as Silence of the Lambs, it's based on the chilling true story of England's notorious "Acid Bath Murderer." The play is a dramatized psychological interview; it features Broadway actors Bradford Cover as the criminal and Dee Pelletier as the psychologist trying to get inside his head. $23. Friday through Sunday. Through Nov. 18. The Carnegie Center, 1028 Scott Blvd., Covington. 859-957-1940, thecarnegie.com.
