Theater for Yuppies

Before the curtain rises on tonight's performance of All Hail Hurricane Gordo, young theater buffs can scarf down munchies and throw back cocktails at the Cleveland Play House's Theatre Rocks blowout. The year-old program for 25- to 40-year-olds is designed to attract young blood to the theater. "My radar's out so we don't compete with anything else going on in town," says Tara Templeman, the theater's audience-development manager. "I think we're on the right track." Theatre Rocks rolls from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, April 24, at the Cleveland Play House, 8500 Euclid Avenue. Tickets are $25. Call 216-795-7000 or visit
