Belfast Maskers will present four performances of Profiles, a new musical play, at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, March 15 and 16, and March 22 and 23, at the Basil Burwell Community Theater, 17 Court Street in Belfast. The play, featuring Maggie Machaiek and Carlton Smith, follows the story of a celebrated American novelist who withdraws from public view and publishes nothing for 25 years, then unexpectedly grants a series of interviews to an ambitious young journalist. The musical explores the intersection of fact and fiction, life and literature. Music direction is by Theo Van Deventer and stage direction is by Carlton Smith. Seating is cabaret style. The ticket price of $20 for adults or $15 for teens includes light refreshments. Wine (or alternative), desserts and tea will be served. Tickets are available at www.belfastmaskers.com.
