So, what’s the deal with dramas? Seriously. Can we talk about this?

I don’t get it. I just don’t get it. Great play, amazing cast, deft direction, beautiful set. Did I mention this cast is awesome? It’s the final weekend of this amazing show and there are still seats available. Okay, so it’s a
DRAMA. What’s wrong with dramas? Why do comedies seem so much more appealing? I mean, I love to laugh as much as the next person, probably more. But a good drama, or even a tragedy, can feed the soul, cleanse the emotions, tell you something about yourself, about humanity. Something very important.

Full disclosure here. I love dramas. Meaty, true to life character studies are my favorite thing. And I’ll bet you love ’em too. But only when they’re good. When they’re done very, very well… like this one. So, I’m going to make you a deal. I’m so sure that you will LOVE this show as much as I do, that I’m going to offer you a killer discount to come and see it this weekend. Come on . Just do it. Take advantage of a very special “Theatre Lover’s
this weekend only. All tickets for TIME STANDS STILL are just $20. Why? Because we want YOU to see this play. Really. Don’t believe me? Check out the Tribune review by Debby Nicklas HERE.  Then, you can get all the details about how to get your discount (the password is drama!) right HERE.  Do it. You’ll be glad you did. 
Speaking of GREAT shows… have you met Marge? And Trudy…and Lyn…then there’s Chrissy and Edie and… geez, there are just far too many to name. And they’re all miraculously played by Suzy Newman. Don’t believe me? Then you haven’t seen THE SEARCH FOR SIGNS OF INTELLIGENT LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE. And there are only 3 more chances for you to rectify that situation and avoid the TRAGEDY of missing this fabulous comedy!  (See what I did there?)  Seriously, if you miss this show, you are gonna hate yourself in the morning. 
Once again, I’ve got back-up here. Check out Sarah Linn’s REVIEW in Ticket today. And trust me, this one’s NOT a drama. Far from it. But of course it IS a late-night show. And by late night, I mean 9:30 pm on Friday and Saturday and 7 pm on Sunday. That’s not so late, is it?!  Of course not!  Don’t be such a fuddy-duddy!  Okay, I’m gonna sweeten the deal for you. How about a discount? We’re offering a special “Friends of Marge” discount just for you and your friends — $10 for all seats, all 3 shows!  You can’t beat that deal!

Listen, I really couldn’t tell you why we’re not sold out already. We should be. But I’m not going to sit idly by while you miss the chance to experience this amazing one woman show, so I’m making you you an offer you can’t refuse. Click HERE to get your half price tickets today (the password is lily – for Lily Tomlin, of course!)

And before I forget, I gotta remind you about AUDITIONS!  The final show in our Ubu’s Other Shoe 11th Anniversary Season will be directed by Jill Turnbow and auditions are this coming Monday night, April 27th at 6 pm.  We need four brave, funny and very talented actors to take on Edward Albee’s THE GOAT (or Who is Sylvia?) The show will run for three performances only on June 19 and 20. Click HERE to get the details and we’ll see you on Monday night!

Don’t make me tell you again. You’ve got to see these shows! Really.
