BWW Feature: VALENTINE'S DAY FOR THEATER LOVERS in Central Pennsylvania
Valentine's Day is right around the corner. It is prime time for lovers of all sorts, especially theater lovers. Select a "dream Valentine" below and consider making a date to see her "favorite show".
If Lorena Bobbitt is your dream Valentine... If you are a fan of sexy dance moves, Bob Fosse, and "All That Jazz", slink your way down to the Lancaster's Fulton Theater for their production of the musical, Chicago. Set in the 1920's, this is a high energy show the deals with themes of fame, notoriety, and "getting away with murder". Tickets can be purchased here through February 17th.
If Scarlett O'Hara is your dream Valentine...- Also playing at the Fulton during February is The Glass Menagerie. One of Tennessee William's best plays, it tells the story of Tom, his controlling mother and his introverted sister. Memories, wishes, and hopes are sometimes not enough to combat the cruel reality of our lives. Performances run February 12 through March 3rd.
If Lucille Ball is your dream Valentine...- Plaza Suite is the type of show where the set is the main star. Neil Simon wrote three short plays with only two things in common-they are all set in the same NYC hotel room and they are all hilarious. Come see the inaugural performance in Susquehanna Stage's new home, February 15 through 24.
If Batman Villainess, Poison Ivy is your dream Valentine... Belmont Theatre is slated to run "Little Shop of Horrors", February 15- 24. There is a good reason they sing a song titled "Don't Feed the Plants"! Take a visit to Skid Row with Seymour, Audrey, and the always hungry Audrey II.
If Elly May Clampett is your dream Valentine-In the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, the beleaguered Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Dearly Departed plays at Hershey Area Playhouse, February 7-17.
