You have three more opportunities to catch Glass Mendacity this weekend Cité des Arts. And next weekend marks the return of Gros Becs and Eulalie.
Directed by Jody L. Powell, the parody of Tennessee Williams' "The Glass Menagerie," "A Streetcar Named Desire," and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" are set for Friday and Saturday, 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m.
According to reports, the two-act comedy has plenty of verbal gags twisted from Williams' original scripts that will keep the audience in stitches. The actors have free range of the stage, delivering the original plays’ best lines with sharp characterizations and all the flair as if they were playing the originally written roles.
Tickets are $15. Go here for more information, or call 291.1122.They're back: Gros Becs and Eulalie
Shane Guilbeau and Sandra Broussard have performed the characters over the years in these locally written comedies and have their parts down. If you need a good laugh, don't miss this show.
Performances are June 29-30, July 6-7, and July 13-14 7:30pm
Here's a synopsis:
PeeWee Leblanc is a hunter at heart. His desire to hunt Gros Becs, an endangered species, has lead to an endless chase from Vincent Guidry, the game warden. It seems as though the years of chasing PeeWee are about to pay off. Or are they? If Rose Leblanc has anything to do with it, Vincent may just get his wish in catching PeeWee, and Rose may finally get PeeWee to mass.
Eulalie by Clayelle Dalfres is about a young girl in love. However, Eulalie's true love doesn’t love her “atall, atall”. Eulalie may just capture the man of her dreams, with the help of Taunte Terese. But none of this will happen unless Eulalie can pull off the love potion Taunte Terese has conjured up. Will Eulalie end up with the man of her dreams? Only time will tell.
