To whet your appetite for this years Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, the Shalimar is putting on an award-winner from last years festival: La Femme Est Morte, or Why I Should Not F!%# My Son. The loose Phaedra adaptation has Senecas ancient tale about a woman lusting after her own stepson mashed up with all sorts of modern craziness, including a boxing match, paparazzi, speeches (General Patton, Churchill), and further help from the lips of Britney, Angelina, and Gwyneth. The result was a crowd-pleaser in Scotland and should knock out New York audiences as well.
Thursdays-Sundays, 8 p.m.; Sat., May 24, 8 p.m. Starts: May 18. Continues through May 25, 2008
