Hairy Situations 

1390976.t.jpg
If the two Barbershop movies taught us anything, it’s that black people spend a lot of time in barbershops doing other things besides getting their hair cut. The Cleveland Play House’s Cuttin’ Up looks at the shops’ social significance in African American communities. Charles Randolph-Wright’s play is based on anecdotes provided by real-life barbers. “It celebrates my Uncle Howard and the legacy of men like him,” says Randolph-Wright. “They may seem ordinary in who they are or what they do, but they are extraordinary in how they do it -- with dignity, with charm, with humor, and with elegance.”
Saturdays, 4 & 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m.; Tuesdays-Fridays, 8 p.m. Starts: Feb. 3. Continues through Feb. 25
