Billed as "Fargo Meets Bridesmaids (without the wood chipper or food poisoning)," Don't Hug Me, We're Married tracks the trap-filled path down the aisle for a couple of couples in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota. Group Rep premieres the fifth in this series of raucous musical comedies by Phil and Paul Olson, which follows their last entry Don't Hug Me, I'm Pregnant. The latest edition boasts a bevy of comical complications, starting with a pair of unconventional proposals and running right up to a rapping minister. More than 15 new tunes are on tap for the premiere, including "The Greatest Love Song Ever," "The Marriage Test," "The Day that Bob Dylan Was Here" and "We're All Gonna Die." Learn More

Speaking for myself, the 12 others who joined me, and two who tagged along with their own tickets - all 15 of us thought The Paris Letter was great!
A big discussion item at dinner after the play - the acting well done, characters well...continued
Before Stonewall, when “Are you a friend of Dorothy’s?” was code for “Are you gay?,” when you went to a psychiatrist to cure homosexuality — a man could marry, have kids and “prove” he was straight. This play affirms the bonds between human beings and takes us on an electrifying journey through time to show the struggle of a man born one generation too early. Sandy Sonnenberg lives a life of privilege which lulls him into believing he is untouchable. His extra-curricular affairs are buried – until he becomes entangled in a disastrous financial scheme which cuts the thin thread that ties him to a conventional life.
