This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial. Show dates Jan. 16, 17, 18, 23-25, 30-31; Feb. 1,2 (matinee), 6-8. Visit theatre's website for tickets. Showtime 8 p.m., matinee 3 p.m.
