Today’s featured event:

See Lyric Theatre’spremiere of the new musical mystery/romance “Triangle” at 7:30 p.m. today and Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday at Lyric at the Plaza, 1725 NW 16. Information: 524-9312 or www.lyrictheatreokc.com.

Part of Lyric Theatre’s commitment to the staging of new works, “Triangle” features music by Curtis Moore and lyrics by Thomas Mizer. Their story alternates between 1911 and 2011, a device that allows the show’s characters to create connections through time.

For anyone who lived through the 1995 Murrah Building bombing, this piece takes on even greater resonance. And while the musical’s setting might seem emotionally harrowing, it’s simply the framework for parallel love stories that unfold a century apart, writes my fine colleague Rick Rogers in his review for The Oklahoman.
