Venice Theatre’s next Stage II production is “Underneath the Lintel.” Glen Berger’s “absorbing one-man show” (New York Times) opened March 13 in the Pinkerton Theatre and runs through Sunday, March 30. Performances are at 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and at 2 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets are $25 to $28 for adults, and $10 to $15 for students, and are on sale now at the theatre’s box office, online at or by phone at 941-488-1115.

“Underneath the Lintel” is an adventure story about a Dutch librarian on a quest to find the person who returned a book that was 113 years overdue. His search takes him around Europe, through centuries and involves many clues ending in Christian medieval folklore. Peter Ivanov directs Jeremy Guerrero in this solo role, a part that earned T. Ryder Smith a Drama Desk Award nomination as Outstanding Solo Performer and later brought popular West Wing actor Richard Schiff back to his stage roots when he took over the role in the West End production. Guerrero is no stranger to one-man shows having garnered awards for his performance in “I Am My Own Wife,” also at Venice Theatre. Ivanov is excited for audiences to become absorbed in the story and its symbolism.
