Bummed out on Tax Day? Could you use a few laughs this weekend? Well, you’ve come to the right place! This weekend only, we’re offering $10 tickets to an amazing and hilarious one-woman-show: THE SEARCH FOR SIGNS OF INTELLIGENT LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE. This is the show I’ve been waiting for all year. Suzy Newman will take on the Jane Wagner script made famous by Lily Tomlin on Broadway. Directed by the always amazing Kevin Harris, this is the fourth show in our inaugural AFTER HOURS @slotheatre late night comedy series and, trust me, it’s worth staying up late to catch this one.
“A human comedy that strikes home so sharply it brings gasps of recognition as well as outbursts of laughter.” –NEWSWEEK
SEARCH FOR SIGNS will take the stage immediately following our mainstage production of TIMES STANDS STILL on Friday and Saturday at 9:30 pm and Sunday at 7 pm. The show runs for two weekends only, April 17-26, but the discount is available for THIS WEEKEND ONLY! Here’s how: Click HERE for more info on the show, then HERE to order your tickets. Choose your performance, then enter the promo code taxbreak and your $10 ticket option will pop right up.
I like musicals and comedies as much as the next girl, but if you want to really get my attention, and remind me why I LOVE theatre, give me a compelling, “meaty” drama every time. TIME STANDS STILL has it all: an ensemble of strong actors, creative and insightful direction by Teresa Thuman, another beautiful, realistic set by Dave Linfield (I’m considering moving in to that loft!) and a thought-provoking, award-winning script by Donald Margulies.

“Don’t shy away from the serious subject matter of Time Stands Still. This hugely compelling drama mirrors a true-life story set in modern times.” –TRIBUNE TICKET
You can read the complete Tribune review by Debby Nicklas right HERE, but don’t take Debby’s word for it, you definitely need to see TIME STANDS STILL. Click HERE for more info about the show, and click HERE for your tickets today.
The final Ubu’s Other Shoe Staged Reading in our 2014-2015 Season will be Edward Albee’s THE GOAT (or Who is Sylvia?) directed by Jill Turnbow. Four strong actors are needed and auditions are set for Monday, April 27th at 6 pm. Click HERE for more information about auditions and click HERE for more information about the play. You can also click HERE to read a review of the London production from 2004.
That’s about it for me on this Tax Day 2015. I hope your refund is sweet and that you’ll spend just a little of it on some live, local theatre in downtown SLO.
Have a great weekend!
