We were glad to see local actress Marianna Bassham on the big screen in Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom." We're also glad she's starring in John Kuntz's "The Hotel Nepenthe." The play, which won the 2011 Elliot Norton Award for Best New Script, is part of this weekend's Emerging America Festival, a theatrical event jointly presented by the American Repertory Theatre, Huntington Theatre Company, and the Institute of Contemporary Art. Other highlights include Chicago troupe the Hypocrites in "Pirates of Penzance" (see what Joel Brown has to say about it here).
