So I got a few different shows for this week:
Don’t Dress for Dinner
The Common Pursuit
1) Tonight’s 8pm performance (Wed 5/23) of the very funny Broadway play DON’T DRESS FOR DINNER. I’d recommend it if you can make it. It’s playing at the American Airlines Theatre on West 42nd Street between 7th and 8th Avenues.
Tickets $35 each.
Description: Marc Camoletti's Don't Dress for Dinner is the wildly funny sequel to the Broadway hit Boeing-Boeing. Bernard's plans for a romantic rendezvous with his mistress are complete with a gourmet caterer and an alibi courtesy of his friend, Robert. But when Bernard's wife learns that Robert will be visiting for the weekend, she decides to stay in town for a surprise tryst of her own... setting the stage for a collision course of hidden identities and outrageous infidelities. The cook is Suzette, the lover is Suzanne, the friend is bewildered, the wife is suspicious, the husband is losing his mind and everyone is guaranteed a good time at this hilarious romp through the French countryside.
2) I also have tickets for the satirical/parody comedy POTTED POTTER, at the Little Shubert Theatre, 422 West 42nd Street.
Tickets available for this weekend on:
- Saturday at 2pm, 5pm and 8pm
- Sunday at 5pm
Playing to sold out houses all over the world, the Olivier Award nominated Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real life game of Quidditch) into seventy hilarious minutes. Even if you don’t know the difference between a horcrux and a Hufflepuff, Potted Potter will make you roar with laughter.
Written and performed by two-time Olivier Award-nominated actors Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, Potted Potter is perfect for ages six to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed).
“It’s the single funniest thing i have seen in ages. You’re gonna love this show!” - Toronto Star
“A fabulously funny parody! Will tickle the funny bone of every age group.” - Daily Telegraph (UK)
“Blissfully funny, a winner in every way! A little bit of magic…this show is a crowd-pleaser.” - The Guardian (UK)
3) Also tickets for VOCA PEOPLE - WINNER! Alternative Theatrical Experience of the Year 2012 Lucille Lortel Awards – for the following performances:
- Tonight (Wednesday) at 7pm
- Thursday at 7pm
Tickets $30 each.
Playing at New World Stages, 340 West 50th Street
Description: Voca People is an out-of-this-world musical event that combines vocal sounds, a capella singing, comedy and the art of beat box. Performed by eight snow-white ruby-lipped singes with perfect harmony, there are no musical instruments, only vocals. Voca People believe music is the source of life that brings harmony, joy and refueling. A performance bursts with over 70 well known songs that create vocal "fireworks" and leave audiences clapping along and snapping their fingers. Voca People is the musical theater event that bridges languages, cultures, and planets.
4) Roundabout Theatre Company’s new play THE COMMON PURSUIT, at the Laura Pels Theatre, 111 West 46th Street, between 6th and 7th Avenues. (great creative team involved in this production)

Description: Simon Gray's The Common Pursuit chronicles twenty years in the lives of six friends, from their ambitious collegiate days to their surprising discoveries in the real world. Idealistic Cambridge student Stuart Thorne enlists some of his classmates to help him launch a new literary magazine. With the pursuit of great literature as their common thread, they become lifelong friends. But when damaging secrets crop up and business demands creep in, Stuart is faced with some unexpected decisions. Delightfully witty and remarkably poignant, The Common Pursuit is a captivating journey from who we think we are...to who we turn out to be. Directed by Moises Kaufman.
