On October 24th through the 27th, MADCAP Comedy and Improv Troupe presented the John Bishop farce The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 at Newman University's Jabara Flexible Theatre. Under executive artistic director Cameron Carlson and wife Lana, the show was a night of pre-war, German societal commentary and comedy amid a mysterious murder mystery in a Chappaqua, New York City mansion setting. Starring Vonda Newby-Schuster, Mark Barlow, Mary Lou Phipps-Winfrey, Crystal Meek, and Steve Dunn among many others, the show was a perfect selection for tying into their previous show Hounds of Baskerville and for what was Halloween weekend in Wichita.

Parallel Lives explores the lives of a number of characters in a variety of (mostly) comic situations. It is a script that flows seamlessly from laugh-out-loud comedy to thoughtful reverie. Parallel Lives is one of those pieces that draws us in with laughter, then sits us down in a grown-up chair and asks us hard questions. One of those questions is, “what does it mean to be women in the modern age?
