You loved him in zany comedies like The Jerk and Roxanne, but Steve Martin is also one of our freshest and funniest playwrights. The Underpants is the great actor-comedian's laugh-out-loud satire of the bourgeois manners and customs of the early 20th century. When young Louise's underpants accidentally fall down at the king's big parade, it turns her into a celebrity of sorts and jeopardizes the civil service career of her stuffed shirt of a husband. Her 15 minutes of fame reaches its apex when she is recognized by two would-be lotharios who are boarding in the couple's spare room, and a cavalcade of coarse double entendres and burlesque-style physical comedy ensues.

The writer, director and actors took this funny concept and turned it into hilarious. No matter your beliefs, you'll see the humor in a daughter trying to please her parents. All actors did a great job - not over-reaching, so their characters are believable. Matt Landing (Bob, the actor boyfriend) will bring you heavy doses of laughter.
The theatre is small and casual. Our seats were exact center and the perfect distance from the stage. But the theater is small enough that any seat would be decent. Recommended for an evening of light entertainment.
What’s a Jewish girl to do when she’s dating a guy named Chris Cringle but wants to make her parents happy? Create a Jewish doctor boyfriend and hire an actor to play him, of course! And the hilarity that ensues as the plot unfolds is enough to make you say “oy!” Join the Morgan-Wixson Theatre for this comedy about the whole family, directed by Carol Becker and produced by Marc Ostroff. The cast includes Tali Blankfeld, Joanna Churgin, Matt Landig, JP Sarro, Jared Vandenberg and Jack Winnick.
