THEATER: New Shows 

Updated on 10/18/12 to correct the price for "Freud's Last Session."

Several new shows open this weekend in local theaters. From Friday, October 19, through Sunday, October 28, Blackfriars Theatre will host the world premiere of the original musical "Melanie and the Record Man." While detailing the true story of the making of a folk-rock icon during the Woodstock era, the musical simultaneously reveals the romance growing between Melanie Safka, a shy girl from Queens, and successful record producer Peter Schekeryk. The show was written with and will feature Safka herself. Tickets are $45 and can be purchased online at Blackfriars is located at 795 E. Main St. For more information call 454-1260 or check the website.

Worlds collide when psychologist Sigmund Freud and author C. S. Lewis meet one evening in London to discuss God, love, sex, music, and the meaning of life. That's the concept behind "Freud's Last Session," (pictured) a historical fiction currently playing on the Geva Theatre Nextstage (75 Woodbury Blvd) through Sunday, November 11. The intellectual battle that ensues should make for a humorous, yet thought-provoking evening. Tickets start at $25. For details on performance schedules, visit For more information, call 232-4382.
