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 Morgan Wixon Theater is a postage stamp, but for that same reason it's intimate. There's good directing and good talent. Since this was a pre-opening show, it had a couple of rough edges, but very little was still being honed. I thought it a very worthwhile place to come back to -- and so close for we Westsiders!! Yay! Glad that Goldstar clued me in. Will return!
Think you know Sweeney? Think again! Set in the 18th century, this re-envisioned production sets Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous barber-ism and culinary crime in a whole new light… or, shall we say, dark.
Attend the tale of the unjustly exiled barber who returns to London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. His thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers, and the resourceful proprietress of the pie shop downstairs soon has the people of London lining up in droves with her mysterious new meat pie recipe!
