Make sure you print out your ticket confirmation, so you will be waved through. Otherwise , you will need to stop and have your purchase confirmed. Although I understand the need to "reserve" seats for the lobby volunteers in this general seating theatre, choosing less conspicuous seats would be a better option.

Playdates — They’re not just for kids!

This hilarious farce by Billy Aronson explores our “hidden” selves and sheds light on the concept of suburbia. It follows an outrageous group of dedicated elementary school parents that give new meaning to the term “physical education.” As the children head off for their first day of school, their parents decide to try a “first” of their own behind closed doors. Their naughty new ritual brings laughter and self-discovery to the adult participants.

Playwright Billy Aronson is credited with the original concept for the musical Rent and a writer for MTV’s Beavis and Butthead.
