We had made a reservation at Kramer Books' Afterwords. Good food, seasonal menu, informal but capable service. 5:30 or 6 p.m. will give you enough time for dinner before you walk to the theater for a 7:30 curtain.The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Capitalism and Socialism With a Key to the Scriptures dining • Dec 08 2014 star this tip starred

This is a play that explores a number of serious themes deftly and with humor. What have women achieved, after 40+ years since the "women's lib" movement started, in terms of their acceptance and comfort with their bodies? What have they been able to solidify in their ability to express their gender preferences and do those work in more constructive ways than the old ones? What are the utility of psychiatric label and what do they do to those who are diagnosed? What constitutes pornography?
And able cast, excellent pacing and fluid staging make it come alive.

All are invited to come and share their thoughts in this moderated discussion on everything from blended families, to the “f” word (feminism) in pop culture, to whether it matters who is doing the looking in images of women’s bodies.
