Speaking of political theater...

That Old Soft Shoe returns from a two week hiatus tonight at 8:45pm. Tickets can be purchased in advance here.

I declare it the best play in the Too Soon Festival. (Ahem...have I spoken too soon?)

Before our show, you should catch the final performance of Death is a Scream. A nice full evening of theater, two great plays, back to back.

Here are the details:

Death Is a Scream

What if you could choose your own "ending"? With the help of a highly skilled Death Agent, you can! And after you buy the farm, a “Corpsetologist” will make you look like your favorite celebrity, model, or head of state. These and other death-dealing characters await you in Esther Crow’s one-woman variety show, “Death Is a Scream”. The Village Voice has said “….[Crow] writes and performs with charm and compassion.” Chock full of gallows humor and “untimely” music, this show will take you by surprise. Kinda like death itself.
