Simultaneously, Vero Voce will present "Pocahontas Uncut," an alternate version of the show directed by David M. Rodriguez, theatrical artistic director of Vero Voce. Using the same cast and crew, "Uncut" will appeal to older audiences by adding meta-humor, sarcasm and dry wit to the same script. "Pocahontas Uncut" will take place at 3 p.m. Nov. 16 and Nov. 23.
