Broadway West Theatre Company in Fremont presents two wonderful comedy one-acts, "Laundry & Bourbon" and "Lone Star" by James McClure directed by Mary Galde, January 18 through February 16.
"Laundry & Bourbon" centers on the discontent and very funny gossip of three small-town wives, Elizabeth, Hattie and Amy Lee, whose marriages have turned out to be less than they hoped for. "Lone Star" takes place in the cluttered backyard of a small Texas bar with Elizabeth's macho husband, Roy, who just returned from Viet Nam, drinking beer and regaling his brother, Ray (who worships him) with tales of war and amorous exploits. They are joined by Cletis, fatuous husband of Amy Lee, who turns the brothers' world up-side-down.
Performance times are 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. There are three Sunday matinees: January 27 and February 3 matinee performances begin with a continental brunch at 12:15 p.m. and the show begins at 1 p.m. The February 10 performance starts at 1 p.m. with refreshments during intermission.
Regular ticket prices are $25 general and $20 for Students, Seniors and TBA members. Thursday, January 24, February 7 and 14 performances are $17 for everyone, with a bargain Thursday (no reservations - first come, first seat!) held on January 31 - all tickets $10. Brunch Sunday performances and Opening night are $25 for everyone. All ticket prices include refreshments.
