Here’s a neat idea: If your theater is running a modern classic and getting great turnout and lots of buzz, why not run the sequel? And heck, since the first cast was so good, just let them play the same roles in the sequel, and show them both in rep in case people didn’t see the first one? The American Shakespeare Center is rolling out King John, a play that picks up from the recently lauded production of The Lion in Winter.

Through 11/24 Pay what you will, 7:30pm. Blackfriars Playhouse, 10 S. Market St., Staunton. (540) 885-5588.
