The next few weeks bring two productions to the stage of the Mansfield Playhouse – both sure to generate some laughs on cold winter days.
On January 19, 20, 26, and 27 at 8 PM, and on January 28 at 2:30 PM, enjoy Better Late, a romantic comedy by Larry Gelbart (author of M*A*S*H* and City of Angels). Directed by Mark Sebastian Jordan, this wild comedy features one-liners to flat-liners as it tells the tale of Lee, who is forced by his wife Nora to house her ex-husband, Julian, after the latter’s stroke.
Then in February, the characters of Greater Tuna will make their appearance on the Playhouse stage. In this hilarious send-up of small-town morals and mores, they are all among the upstanding citizens of Tuna, Texas’ third-smallest town. The long-running Off Broadway hit features two actors creating the entire population of Tuna in a tour de farce of quick change artistry, changing costumes and characterizations faster than a jack rabbit runs from a coyote. Two actors, twenty characters, and a barrel of laughs!
