Weekend foreCAST: Drowsy Chaperone(s), Love Child, and This Week’s Theatre Openings


Of the shows opening this weekend, these are the ones we want to see. These could be the best shows of the year or these shows could end up being terrible. As always we encourage you to chime in with your thoughts on our list and what shows you are seeing this weekend.




HIS CHOICE: The Drowsy Chaperone at Creede Rep and Vintage

From the Creede Rep website: A rare combination of unprecedented originality and blinding talent, this hit musical boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in all of our hearts: to be entertained. If you’ve ever sat in a dark theatre and thought, “Dear Lord in heaven, please let it be good,” this is the show for you! It all begins when a die-hard musical-theater fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, and the musical literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet trying to find, and keep, her true love.

HER CHOICE: Love Child at Avenue Theatre

From the Avenue website:2 Actors. 26 Characters. 6 Chairs.

Joel, a neurotic, down-on-his-heels actor/playwright, is opening his new adaptation of an obscure Euripides comedy in a smelly former sausage factory in Brooklyn. Unknown to him, there’s a big-time Hollywood casting director in the house, as well as his crazy mother (who’s also his agent) and his crazy aunt (who’s really his mother). When one of the actors takes sleeping pills and passes out mid-performance, and the leading lady quits, Joel’s relatives leap over the footlights to rescue the show. Realities collide, and his family’s wild stories out-Greek the script, in a horrifically hilarious night of truth-telling.
