Mongtomery County's Unexpected Stage Company lives up to its name with the show that kicks off its second season, David Johnston's Candy and Dorothy. When it ran off-off Broadway in 2006, the New York Times called the comic fantasy "an oddball homage to Frank Capra," while GLAAD bestowed it with a Media Award. The play explores an encounter between Candy Darling, the glamorous, transsexual Andy Warhol superstar, and Dorothy Day, the devout co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement. They meet up in the afterlife, when they must work to save a down-on-her-luck, drug-selling librarian. Unexpected Stage's co-founder Chris Goodrich directs Jean Hudson Miller and Robert Sheire. Opens tonight, Friday, July 15, at 7:30 p.m. Runs through July 31. VisArts, 155 Gibbs St. Rockville. Tickets are $8 to $20. Call 301-337-8290 or visit unexpectedstage.org.
