Lil' Orphan Fanny

Kate Hudson Don’t-bother flicks Directed by Andy Tennant. Written by Andy Tennant, John Claflin, and Daniel Zelman. Starring Matthew McConaughey, Kate Hudson, Donald Sutherland, Ray Winstone, Ewen Bremner, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, and Alexis Dziena. Rated PG-13. Opens Friday.
In Kalliope Stage's production of Ed Dixon's Fanny Hill tonight, a parentless 15-year-old girl moves to London to live with a friend in a whorehouse. While the storyline rates at least a PG-13, it's mild compared to readers' uproar over the 1741 John Cleland novel of the same name. "Homosexuality is discussed, and the main character has a lesbian affair," says artistic director Paul Gurgol. "This is stuff we see on TV every day." The play starts at 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, through Sunday, March 9, at Kalliope Stage, 2134 Lee Road in Cleveland Heights. Tickets are $22 to $35.

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Feb. 14. Continues through March 9, 2008
