In a shameless self-promoting plug, I am encouraging you to stop in to the Secret Theatre in Long Island City for the final weekend of COMEDY IN QUEENS, two alternating bills of comedic one-acts lovingly produced and performed with brio. I myself have two one-acts, one each program, that I'm happy with, but there's some really fun writing, directing and acting throughout. And if you're ready to laugh yourself silly, Saturday there will be a marathon starting at 5:30, with Program 1 AND Program 2 back-to-back (with snacks!) all for a bargain price of $20. (The usual price per program is $15.) Here's the info--c'mon, you know you could use a good laugh!
