Rodney Lee Rogers reprises the much-missed one-man-show, The Tragedian, about the life and embattled times of the one and only Edwin Booth. Yes, that Booth. The brother of that guy who shot the 16th President of the United States. This all-too-brief run begins tomorrow night and ends Saturday. Rogers debuted the show last year and performed it again during the 2008 Piccolo Spoleto Festival. We hoped it would appear for a second year at Piccolo, but Rogers has other plans with the premiere of another one-man-show. Something about a pirate. Anyway, if you are normally gun-shy about paying the big bucks to see theater but would like to see it if and only if the theater performance is of some quality, then you really need to set aside time to see this pay-what-you-can night. It’s touching, deep, and, um, tragic. For more, call (843) 723-4444 or visit www.puretheatre.org. —JS
