Colony's 'Camellias' begins previews

The Colony Theatre Company begins previews tonight for the world

premiere of a newly revised production of "The Ladies of the

Camellias," written and directed by Lillian Groag.

Set in France in 1897, riots and political unrest brew outside a

major Paris theater. Inside, two of the greatest rivals in the

history of the stage -- Sarah Bernhardt and Eleonora Duse -- gird for

their perceptive, quick-witted and legendary encounter.

Previews are at 8 tonight, Thursday and Friday. All tickets are

$16. The play opens Saturday. Tickets for opening night are $60 and

include a reception. Regular performances are at 8 p.m. Fridays and

Saturdays and 2 and 7 p.m. Sundays. Tickets range from $26 to $36.

The theater is at 555 N. 3rd St. For reservations, call 558-7000.
