Maude Night #4
Wednesday, March 15 at Muchmore’s, 9 pm: $5-7 suggested donation

Written and performed by Brian Fiddyment, Edy Modica, and Rick Swenson. Directed by Jo Firestone.

Picture this: you’re at a small performance space underneath a neon-lit jazz club, amidst a pink-lit bar and decorative mannequins. After a few moments of mingling and sipping PBR, a man comes onstage and informs everyone that if they didn’t already know, this show involves fully nude bodies. If we are so shocked by this horrid fact and want a refund, they are available at the door.
