World premiere comedy captures Maine spirit

BANGOR – The Bangor Opera House is playing host to a truly hair-raising experience…an experience taking place for the very first time.

Penobscot Theatre Company is presenting the world premiere of “Hair Frenzy,” a new work by local playwright Travis Baker. Directed by PTC veteran Dominick Varney, this spiritual sequel to 2014’s Clauder Prize-winning “One Blue Tarp” is running through Feb. 14.

The play revisits the fictional town of Clara, Maine; it’s a small town with a big heart, filled with the sorts of regular folks and eccentric characters that will likely ring familiar to anyone who has spent time in our state.

NEW YORK — Character actor Abe Vigoda, whose leathery, sunken-eyed face made him ideal for playing the over-the-hill detective Phil Fish in the 1970s TV series “Barney Miller” and the doomed Mafia soldier in “The Godfather,” died Tuesday at age 94.

Vigoda’s daughter, Carol Vigoda Fuchs, told The Associated Press that Vigoda died Tuesday morning in his sleep at Fuchs’ home in Woodland Park, New Jersey. The cause of death was old age. “This man was never sick,” Fuchs said.

Orono Community Theatre presents stage classic

ORONO – One of the most touching and inspirational stories ever to grace the American stage has been brought to life in Orono.

Orono Community Theatre’s production of “The Miracle Worker” - written by William Gibson as an adaptation of Helen Keller’s autobiography “The Story of My Life” and directed by Angela Bonacasa – is now playing at the Cyrus Pavilion Theatre on the University of Maine campus. The show runs through January 24.

“The Miracle Worker” tells the story of young Helen Keller (Sophia Mullins), a girl struck blind and deaf by an illness in her infancy. Despite the best efforts of her mother (Amy Moran) and father (Mark Bilyk), there doesn’t seem to be any way to reach Helen, whose frustration and anger spill over into uncontrollable tantrums that dominate the household.
