Miraculously retaining its comic timing and timeless wit more than a century later, Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) was originally published as a hilarious novel in 1889. Written as a travelogue, the lively story tells of three young men -- and a devoted terrier named Montmorency (played here by ... well, not a dog) -- on a boating holiday that quickly devolves into a series of absurd misadventures. Directed by Derek Goldman, this adaptation brings to life one of the funniest novels of all time in a must-see show. Learn More

Having recently rediscovered Richard Lewis on a recent episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm", I wasn't sure what to expect (he didn't have much to say that episode). He rambled, he wandered, I'd say he has ADHD and he was very funny. He didn't seem to have much of a script; he riffed on the 9/11 bikers who jammed up traffic in Crystal City (which isn't a city but is really Arlington, he found out), the strangeness of the venue (Synetic props of large cogs on the wall and the theatre is underground) and that he has been in 10 cities in 19 days = exhausted. He's a veteran stand-up comic at 64, a former coke addict and alcoholic, which he mentioned several times along with various physical maladies. He's probably a miracle of modern science! I laughed a lot, which was the point. Just bear in mind that he is profane, not PC and tells a lot of Jewish and dysfunctional family jokes.

Doing free-form comic improvisations off his neurotic themes, the 64 year old Lewis was still the frenetic comedian of yore, but able to turn even his new found personal contentment in marriage and sobriety into a rich vein of humor....
