Here are three recommendations if you're thinking of spending your holiday money on theatre instead of this
1. ZERO has been getting some great press. Did you get in on the free tickets? If you missed out, you can always leave a comment on here for a discount. Seriously, if you have that friend who will not come to any show because they say, "I don't do theatre," bring them to this. Below are some press quotes:
"O’Connor’s piece astonishingly blossoms in its heartbreak"------Mitch Montgomery, Off-Off Online
"Zero is an impressive performance, and an enjoyable evening out"-------Jon Sobel, Blog Critics
"Danny O'Connor can do wasted like nobody's business"---------Marc Miller, Backstage Magazine
So if you were on the fence before, you may wanna scoop up some tickets.
2. Dance Dance Revolution- I saw this on it's opening night and just barely got in. There are 40 actors in this show and it's really pretty wild. If you're the type of person who loved this when you were in school and Footloose, you'll get a kick out of this one. They also give you free beer. Not a bad evening out!
3. Summer and Smoke- I remember doing scenes from this play when I was in undergrad and loving it. The folks over at Boomerang Theatre Company have put together a really amazing production. I love seeing a simple story told well and this is an absolutely heart wrenching story that is very well acted. This is what Indie Theatre does for our culture. See it. 'Nuff said.
There you have it. My picks for the weekend. Now I'm off to another show. So if you see something, comment and say something!
