Legend has it that Sidney Poitier was so moved by the story of The Lilies of the Field that he waived his usual salary -- not knowing he would later win worldwide fame (and an Oscar) for his portrayal of the hard-headed Homer Smith. From the moment it was published as a novel by William E. Barret, The Lilies of the Field has had a special effect on people. Experience it yourself when Open Window Theatre presents this heart-warming stage adaptation. Headed west in search of a new beginning in the mid-1950s, black Southern Baptist itinerant worker Homer Smith encounters a group of Catholic nuns scratching out an existence in the remote Southwest. Mother Maria Marthe, convinced that Homer was sent to them by God to build them a chapel, persuades him to stay (without pay) and take on this seemingly impossible task. The faith of all are tested, proving that friendships and miracles alike come in all forms. Learn More

I've never been to the Acme Comedy Co. before, but I really liked it! The atmosphere was fun and the entertainment was hilarious. I preferred Josh Weinstein's humor a little more than that of Chris Bliss, but the "tag team" approach of having both of them on stage the entire time helped to keep the audience attentive to both comedians I think. They could help one another out when they got stuck and how they built off of each other was funny too. I would definitely encourage more of these "tag team" approaches in the future as they keep everybody happy most of the time (versus a long stretch of someone that they're not enjoying). I'd love to come back some time!
A fresh and captivating new voice in the tradition of American satire from Will Rogers to Dennis Miller, Chris Bliss delivers smart comedy for the information age. Now a Tonight Show favorite, Jay Leno has called him “one of the brightest comedians around.” Before beginning his comedy career, Chris was internationally known as an innovative variety artist – touring with major artists from Eric Clapton to Julio Iglesias, and chosen by Michael Jackson as the opening act for his record-breaking “Victory Tour”. Insightful humor, capped off with a world-class variety finale that your audience won’t soon forget – - Chris Bliss is two of the best in one outstanding performer.
