The Adobe Theater Presents UNNECESSARY FARCE in June Photo The Adobe Theater Presents UNNECESSARY FARCE in June
by Stephi Wild - May 9, 2022

A ridiculous farce! Written by Paul Slade Smith. Two cops. Three crooks. Eight doors. Go. In a cheap motel room, an embezzling mayor is supposed to meet with his female accountant, while in the room next-door, two undercover cops wait to catch the meeting on videotape. But there's some confusion as to who's in which room, who's being videotaped, who's taken the money, who's hired a hit man, and why the accountant keeps taking off her clothes. An evening of hysterical laughter!

BWW Review: Stage West Swings the Vote with THE OUTSIDER Photo BWW Review: Stage West Swings the Vote with THE OUTSIDER
by Vicki Trask - Feb 25, 2020

When it comes to political theatre, one's mind does not immediately turn to Stage West Theatre Restaurant. But if there's one thing Calgarians have come to learn, it's that Stage West loves to bring all kinds of comedy to the stage to entertain their audiences. Their current production of The Outsider is one such comedy that had me in stitches but left me wanting.

Norbert Leo Butz, who plays Mr. Doolittle, added, 'It's kind of a miraculous thing that something that is so entertaining sounds so beautiful and is so funny is about something so deep.
