This Week's Off-Broadway Openings: August 16th-August 22ndAugust 16, 2010 - by City Guide News Desk
30 Half-Nekkid Plays In 60 Half-Nekkid Minutes - A special half-naked version of Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind. The New York Neo-Futurists perform their award-winning blend of personal, political, and absurd short plays...in their short pants.
702 Punchlines and Pregnant -- A Miami Musical - Sheba Mason's account of her dad Jackie Mason's love affair with her starry-eyed mother.
Sex in Mommyville - A musical feminist comedy about the misadventures of a neurotic, guilt-ridden, health-conscious, sex-starved Manhattan mom trying to please her high-maintenance children, her lawyer-husband, and her Russian parents who live upstairs.
The Sneeze - Michael Frayn’s richly comic adaptation of the incomparable Chekhov’s wild and witty vaudevillian vignettes, bounds across town and country, past rich and poor, with an improbable duel, a mismanaged marriage proposal, and, of course, a life-shattering sneeze along the way. This rollicking journey offers a different kind of “Chekhovian” world: one gone amok, awry, and askew -- in all the best ways.
