Come out to The MAIN for Comedy Tonight: A Night of Original One Acts, two nights only! Comedy Tonight is an evening of hilarious original one-act plays presented by the Comedy in a Week wing of the Off Book Theatre Company. In the span of one week, each of these comedies is cast, produced, directed, rehearsed and presented by local artists. With each one-act having its own director and the actors working under the adrenaline of limited rehearsal time, the evening will be fresh, contemporary and, most of all, funny. Be ready to enjoy theatre in its purest form as these multi-talented thespians amaze and entertain you. The shows are Friday, Nov. 8, and Saturday, Nov. 9, at 8:00 p.m.
The theatrical performance this month at The MAIN is Eclipse Theater Company’s production of Neil Simon’s “The Gingerbread Lady.” When her teenage daughter shows up on the same day actress Evy Meara returns from a 10-week stint in rehab, she has a reason to stay sober. But toss in a cheating ex-boyfriend and two enabling friends with their own tragic problems, and she has little chance as she throws the worst birthday party in the history of birthday parties. Neil Simon shows us the funny side of being human and the need to find something bigger than ourselves to live for. The show benefits A Light of Hope Recovery Center. Showtimes are Nov. 15, 22 and 23, at 8:00 p.m. and Nov. 16, 17, 23 and 24, at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $18.
The monthly Note by Note live music night will be canceled this month due to the Thanksgiving holiday but will be back on the fourth Thursday of December.
