Award-winning actor and celebrity impersonator, Joe Posa, brings his "very-naughty-but-SO-much-fun" Joan Rivers tribute show to The Delray Playhouse.

Robert Dubac's THE BOOK OF MORON
Friday, June 14th at 8 p.m.; Saturday, June 15th at 2 & 8 p.m.; Sunday, June 16th at 2 p.m.; tickets $55
Robert Dubac's newest Off-Broadway solo hit, THE BOOK OF MORON is a fast-paced, hilarious production that combines satire and theater into what is being described by critics as: "Razor-sharp!"... "Laugh Out loud!"... "Provocative!"... "Thought Provoking!"... "Brilliant!" and "A Thinking Man's One Man Show!" Robert Dubac draws on decades of showbiz experience as a writer, actor and stand-up comic to create solo shows that explore social mores, political ideas and the complexity of the human experience. He belongs to a unique breed of humorists, bringing to mind the best of Lily Tomlin and Mark Twain, creating characters that boggle our minds with biting wit and rapid-fire satire while simultaneously crafting a simple story that binds us all together. The New York Times raves, "Riding shotgun with intelligence and absurdity, THE BOOK OF MORON crashes head first into the barriers of sex, race, religion, politics and the media. It may be offensive to some, but there's laughter for all!"
