The 23rd annual Johnny Thunders Tribute Show is tonight (April 18) at Motor Alley, 1402 52nd St.

Burlington theater group bringing ‘Fools’ to stage

The Haylofters begin the 2014 theater season with the Neil Simon comedy “Fools” starting Thursday (April 24) and running through May 11 at the Malt House Theater, 109 N. Main St. in Burlington. Shows taking place Thursdays through Saturdays begin at 7:30 p.m. Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.

“Fools” is a fable about a small town cursed with stupidity for the last 200 years. Their only hope seems to be the new schoolteacher who is hired to teach the doctor’s daughter, a lovely but intellectually impoverished young lady. Will the schoolteacher be able to break the curse? Will the doctor’s daughter learn how to add 1 + 2 correctly?

While its “sister” show on PBS — the massive hit “Downton Abbey” — gets showered with attention and adulation, this show, about London midwives working among the city’s poorest residents, toils in relative obscurity.

‘Becky’s New Car’ appealing thanks to originality of laughs

Over Our Head Players is bringing a warm, romantic comedy to Sixth Street Theatre in “Becky’s New Car,” opening tonight.

Director Rich Smith said the sharp, hilarious play takes a woman on a devious, delightful ride down the road not taken. Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage.
