Rounding out a great year of deliciously varied theater, STAGES mounts The Dinner Party. A cast of six characters are brought together for a night that promises to change their lives. The guests have not been told why theyve been invited or who else will be in attendance, but the past is sure to rear its unwelcome head as it usually does in life; the only difference being Neil Simons incomparable wit and comic timing pulls the audience willingly into the experience. Under the assured directorial hand of Amanda DeMaioa playwright herselfjust about anything can become comedy gold. Top it off with the absolute (unpaid, by the way) pros of STAGEStheatre, and ladies and gentlemen, youve got a great night of theater.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 6 p.m. Starts: Oct. 24. Continues through Dec. 1, 2008
