The Acrosstown Repertory Theatre will perform Nicholas Machiavelli's Mandragola starting January 14. Written in the early Sixteenth Century by the age's master political strategist, Machiavelli turns his wit and dark humor to marriage and infidelity. It offers one of those rare moments when a political theorist, of major importance in the Renaissance, brings his "philosophy" to the stage; and it takes up a delicate topic but with discretion and--paradoxically--side-splitting humor. The play runs Thursdays through Saturdays, from January 15 through February 6th. Tickets, just $7 for adults, $5 for students, are available at Book Gallery West, Omni Book Store, and at the door, 619 S. Main Street in the Baird Center. Info: 378-9166.

At the Student Center, 1402 W. University in Gainesville. Admission is a suggested donation of $5 for students and $8 for the general public. Shows are Fridays and Saturdays, January 15th through 29th, with matinees on Sundays through January 31st at 3 p.m. For more information, call 335-6874.
