Ain’t Misbehavin’ — Saturday, August 20

Join us on Saturday, August 20 at 8:00 p.m. at Elden Street Players to see Ain’t Misbehavin’.
Price: $26 by check or $28 by paypal for members and $29/$32 for non-members

It’s closing night of The snazzy, jazzy, finger-snapping, toe-tapping Ain’t Misbehavin’ in the intimate Elden Street Players’ Industrial Strength Theatre in Herndon, VA.

For 20 years, my other social group The Ushers has ended its season watching ESP’s summer musical and our own Vonda McCrae reviewed the show for my website Maryland Theatre Guide and raved:

“For two hours, I really felt like I was in 1930’s Harem. I was disappointed when the show ended and I had to come back to the reality. ESP’s Ain’t Misbehavin’ is a ‘Must See’ theatrical event. So don’t forget to ‘Grab a jug an’ cut the rug, because that joint was really jumpin’’.

We’ll also be having dinner at 5:30 PM at Taste of the World if you wish to attend.

A sparkling romantic musical, Glimpses of the Moon follows the jazzy whirl of New York society in 1922.

Noises Off – Saturday, August 21

Join us on Saturday, August 21 at 8:00 p.m. at Keegan Theatre to see Noises Off.
Price: $23 for members, $26 for non-members.

In his plot for Noises Off, Michael Frayn plays on the concept of a play within a play, in this case a dreadful sex comedy titled Nothing On—the type of play in which young girls run about in their underwear, old men drop their trousers, and many doors continually open and shut. Nothing On is set in “a delightful 16th-century posset mill” that has been converted to a modern dwelling for which renters are solicited; the fictional playwright is appropriately named Robin Housemonger. Each of the three acts of Noises Off contains a performance of the first act of Nothing On.
