Like Mr. Klapisch’s earlier films “L’Auberge Espagnole” and “Russian Dolls,” “My Piece of the Pie” paints an alluring picture of a pan-European cosmopolitan culture whose characters hopscotch from one country to another with hardly a second thought in a lighthearted floating party. Now, of course, there are alarming signs that the party is about to end. 3/16, 1 & 8pm, 3/17, 8pm. Tickets $5 online or $6 at the door. www.auburnpublictheater.org 315-253-6669
