Not everything makes the leap — some of the clueless men are sung by women. Guarino describes the staging as “tennis court style” in the Cohen Family Studio Theatre. “I think it’s the first time anything’s been staged like this in the studio,” she says. Cohen Studio audiences are used to being up close to performers, but Guarino promises an even more intimate experience, especially with the performers “playing 360 degrees.” Guarino has directed over 40 productions and is at home in the vastness of the Metropolitan Opera or in Henry Street Settlement House’s tiny theatre. The challenges of CCM’s studio space don’t faze her. Another opportunity to collaborate. 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Free but reservations are required.
