BAREFOOT IN THE PARK
JAN 24-27 & JAN 31-FEB 2
RENO LITTLE THEATRE
Spend an evening or afternoon at Reno Little Theatre where you’ll enjoy a local production of Barefoot in the Park.  Directed by Scott Hernandez & Alex Franke, the cast of local actors and guest dancers from Around the Stage Modern Dance Company offer a performance you won’t want to miss.  The product of playwright Neil Simon, Barefoot in the Park debuted on Broadway in 1963 and was the 10th longest running non-musical play in Broadway history.  It tells the story of the first few days of the post-honeymoon period for newly minted attorney Paul and his bride Corie as they move into the fifth-floor walkup of a crumbling brownstone in New York City.  During the course of four days, the couple learns to live together while facing the usual daily hiccups of life.  Barefoot in the Park plays during the next two weekends, so check out the dates, showtimes and special offers at RenoLittleTheatre.org.

 

THE DRESSER: An Elegy To A By‐Gone Era Of The World Of Backstage 
JAN 24-27, JAN 31-FEB 3, FEB 6-9
BRÜKA THEATRE (99 N Virginia Street, Downtown Reno)
Originally produced in 1980 on The West End and Broadway, The Dresser is based on the author’s experiences as dresser to an English Shakespearean actor. The actor, called Sir, is a vainglorious actor, the last of the great breed of English performers.  The play begins with Sir in a “bad way,” as Norman, his dresser, tries valiantly to prepare him to take the stage as King Lear.  Unsure of his lines, as well as who and where he is supposed to be, Sir is adamantly determined to roar his last. This bracing, heartbreaking drama becomes a beautiful stand‐alone story for the redemptive nature of theatre.  Learn more about showtimes and order tickets in advance at Brüka.org.

 

COMEDIAN WILL C
THURSDAY-SATURDAY, JANUARY 24-26
RENO-TAHOE COMEDY CLUB (Pioneer Underground) & LEX NIGHTCLUB (in GSR)Will C started his career making people laugh on a dare back in 1995 at the world-famous Comedy Store in La Jolla, CA and never looked back.  Since then, he has spread his gift for making folks laugh in several films, on television, on comedy tours and in his hometown of LA where he is a regular at Improv, The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store, and The Icehouse in Pasadena.  Here’s a video of Will C doing a little standup (pardon the quality of the audio) and joking about his weight.  Pretty darn funny, but prepare for some adult content.  Enjoy the comedy of Will C in Reno this weekend, and check the schedules here for Reno-Tahoe Comedy at the Pioneer Underground and Lex Nightclub at Grand Sierra Resort.

The play was to be his last before Ludlam’s unexpected death in 1987.  The synopsis… “Chester Nurdiger lives in the back of his pet shop with his mother and his bored wife.  One day a drifter comes along and they hire him to work in the shop.  Sparks are ignited between the bored wife Roxanne and the slick Zachary Slade.  They plot to murder Chester and feed him to the piranhas.”  The New York Post proclaimed The Artificial Jungle to be, “wildly hilarious” and New York Daily News reported, “Barely 20 seconds into the play the audience is already chortling.  Lust, murder, maternal devotion…  It has everything.”  Purchase your tickets to see Restless Artist Theatre’s production this weekend at BrownPaperTickets.com.
