Comedy on Concrete 

Culture in Kansas City, Kansas, tends to flourish at the street level, where community-minded artists bring their truth and beauty to the concrete. At Shakespeare in the Parking Lot III, these creative types will storm what's otherwise the deadest of urban spaces: the parking lot. The lot in question belongs to the Alcott Arts Center (180 South 18th Street, 913-233-2787), that miraculous brick box of an arts space that was a grade school and almost became a prison. There, with verse and verve, director Angie Feidler-Sutton and company hope to demonstrate that there's more life on the pavement than just weeds peeking through the cracks. This year's tailgate masterpiece is The Comedy of Errors, a bawdy goof on twins and romance and all the trouble such a combination yields. The Alcott crew promises a somewhat ribald production but also a carnival atmosphere suitable for families. Tickets run $5, which goes toward purchasing a new boiler for the building. Performances starts at 5 p.m. today and 1 p.m. Sunday.
