They have a really good Mexican restaurant, Gilbert El Indio, across the street. You can eat there before or after the play.

In the polygamist tradition of the hit television show Big Love, the comedy _Run For Your Wife _kicks off 2010 with a multi-marital bang. John Smith is an aptly named very ordinary man with a very extraordinary love life. Without so much as a Blackberry, John has managed to keep dual marriages going, until now.

Director Tina Polzin and the cast are all making their Morgan-Wixson debuts, bringing with them an array of New York and international credits. Features Paul Guay, Michael Silva, Tristan Wright, Laura Buckles, Rebekah Voss, Morgan Krantz, and Justin Wade.
