Closing weekend. The last few chances to sit in the theatre with 4 amazing actors and experience Will Eno’s hilarious, poignant story before it is gone. Last few chances to see Rebecca Lingafelter’s beautiful Third Rail directorial debut! That’s right, we are saying goodbye to The Realistic Joneses. Critics and audiences love this show, and frankly, so do we. We’ll be sad to see this one end – so get here this weekend to help us send it off right!
You’ll laugh. You’ll think about life and relationships and communication. You’ll hear language in new and exciting ways. But mostly, you’ll laugh.
