Usually, it's unwise to judge a book by its cover, or a show by its title, but in the case of Oh Dad, Poor Dad ..., the show is every bit as nutty, twisted and absurd as its infamously memorable title would suggest. The first play of Pulitzer- and Tony-nominee Arthur Kopit (Wings, Indians and Nine), this "farce in three scenes" was a hit off-Broadway, on Broadway and on the silver screen in a film adaptation starring Rosalind Russell. Lots of guys think their dad is a stuffed shirt, but poor Jonathan's pop is actually stuffed, i.e. preserved and toted around in a casket by his over-bearing mother. Little wonder things get complicated when he and his mother arrive at a luxury resort with Dad, Venus flytraps and a piranha in tow. Learn More

It's an excellent play. It won a Tony for best play almost 10 years ago and I saw an excellent vs in DC about 5 years ago. The writing is very good but the show is nothing without excellent actors. I wasn't sure what to expect from this little company. The 3 main leads and a couple of the supporting roles were really well done. I was very impressed with the performance and would recommend it to friends. And kudos to members of the cast brave enough to handle the nudity that is an important part of the show.

Darren Lemming, the star center fielder of the world champion New York Empires, is young, rich, famous, talented, handsome and so convinced of his popularity that when he casually announces he’s gay, he assumes the news will be readily accepted by everyone. It isn’t.
Like a good ball game, Take Me Out offers the fans a winning combination of drama and suspense, memorable personalities (and physiques), and occasional agony alternating with bouts of exhilaration. True to Dominion Stage’s mission to remain “Anything But Predictable,” this entertaining production is the perfect opportunity to take someone out.
