Held Over Through April 23
The New Vic Theatre is proud to reprise one of our audience’s favorite comedy revues.
Parallel Lives, created by Mo Gaffney and Kathy Najimy, is a challenging play made up of hilarious scenes performed by two women.
The play begins with two Supreme Beings planning the beginning of the world.
From this moment on, the audience is whisked through the outrageous universe of Kathy and Mo, where two actresses play men and women struggling through the common rituals of modern life: teenagers on a date, sisters at their grandmother’s funeral, widows attending college, bar patrons, and more.
With boundless humor, Parallel Lives reexamines the ongoing quest to find parity and love in a contesthandicapped by capricious gods – or in this case, goddesses.
“…a romp with a feminist sensibility; it’s a humor for a post-Lily Tomlin generation…above all, Parallel Lives is a smart, provocative show.”
Featuring Jennifer Furney and Lisa Ouellette, Parallel Lives will be an evening filled with laughs and love.Parallel Lives opens April 1 and plays Fridays and Saturdays through April 16 at 8:00 P.M., all seats $25. Opening night tickets are $30 and include a pre-show reception, beverages and food, and a cast party after the show. Park Club dinner/theatre evenings are Saturday, April 9 and Friday April 15.
