My favorite local theater company, The Neo-Futurists (creators of Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind), is having a special event on August 11, and you should totally go. And only I can help you! (because I'm on the board, and I have tickets)
The event is a benefit performance from the archives of the theater's crazy popular "It Came from the Neo-Futurarium" series, which involves staged readings of bad movie scripts, complete with low-budget props and cheesy special effects.
For one night only, YOU could see the dramatic retelling of the 1992 classic of Gen X roommate dysfunction, "Single White Female," starring Rachel Claff as Bridget Fonda as "Allie" and Dean Evans as Jennifer Jason Leigh as "Hedra."
Tickets are $25, and for your hard-earned cash you get:
-"Single White Female" enacted before your very eyes, with cross-dressing and bad wigs
-Delicious post-show goodies from Whole Foods
-An open bar
Where else can you get that for $25? Nowhere, friend.
Please let me know if you're interested (tickets are only available through board members [like me!] and the ensemble, not on the theater's website). The show is Saturday, August 11 at 8:00 pm. If you enjoy food and drink or ever had a roommate steal your life and try to kill you, you will not want to miss this show!

Admittedly, I am obtuse and myopic, but I am unclear as to the recipient of the Neos' largesse. Is it to benefit the ensemble proper (as I recall Kristie's appeal last year around this same time) or will it benefit another organization, as they did earlier this summer?
No matter the recipient, it's a pretty sweet deal for a noble cause.
Thank you for enlightening this humble mass.

The benefit is for the Neos themselves (well, not themselves personally, but for the theater). They gotta pay them damn bills, you know?
So, do you want a ticket? Because I can sell you one.

Logistically speaking, it would be difficult for me to be in two places at once on this date. However, I have answered the call and made a donation equal to me + 4 attending the event via the website.
Besides, I'm saving up for a visit to Chicago on the third weekend of November. That's right...DIY Trunk Show 2007 among others!

Aw, dude! You rock!
I thank you, and the Neo-Futurists thank you.
