Shorts on the 2nd Floor

Don't miss this evening of great short plays!  

by Tennessee Williams, Robert Anderson, David Ives, Christopher Durang, Gregory Hischak.

Directed by Betty Diamond, Michael Bruno, Suzan Kurry, Tom Haig & Sarah Whelan, Lee Waldhart, and John Jajewski

On the Drury Stage

Comedy tonight! Christopher Durangʼs “Mrs. Sorken” opens this evening of short plays by major and emerging figures in American theatre. You will laugh at Tennessee Williamsʼ rollicking “A Perfect Analysis Given By A Parrot,” and bittersweet “The Lady of Larkspur Lotion”; Robert Andersonʼs gentle “Iʼm Herbert”; David Ivesʼ clever “The Sure Thing” and “The Philadelphia”; and Gregory Hischakʼs absurdly comic “Hygiene.” 

MTGʼs Shorts on the 2nd Floor will leave you smiling.

Three more performances: Red, Hot, and Cole! 

Madison Theatre Guild's current production  is Red, Hot, and Cole!, running through January 25 at the Bartell Theatre.  Tickets available now!  

 Capital City Hues says "Red Hot & Cole is a delightful play that is pure entertainment. If you love Broadway music and want to enjoy an evening to get away from it all, then Red Hot & Cole is the party that is just right for you." 

Aaron Conklin from  Madison Magazine's Stage Write blog: "... a fascinating look at a man whose wit and musical genius could overcome almost any obstacle. Whether you’re a lifelong Porter fan or have somehow managed to miss the charms of “It’s De-Lovely’ and “Don’t Fence Me In,” you’ll leave the Bartell with a Porter song in your heart and a big ol’ smile on your face."
