By Steve Martin
January 12 through February 10.
Steve Martin provides a wild satire adapted from a classic German play about Louise and Theo, a couple whose conservative existence is shattered when Louise’s bloomers fall down at a public event. Though she pulls them up quickly, Theo thinks the incident will cost him his job as a government clerk. Louise’s momentary display does not result in scandal but it does attract two infatuated men, and each wants to rent the spare room. Oblivious of their amorous objectives, Theo splits the room between them, happy to collect rent from both the foppish poet and the whiny hypochondriac. Both boarders then woo her behind his back, much to the vicarious delight of their nosy neighbor.
