Novelist Charles Webb’s story of a naïve college grad adrift in the seas of existential ennui who stumbles into a May-December shagging fest with one of his parent’s alcoholic friends has, for decades, been the wet dream of millions of young American men eager to bed an attractive older woman. And while this version doesn’t have our favorite Mrs. Robinson, Anne Bancroft, or even the past stage incarnations transmuted by Kathleen Turner, Lorraine Bracco, Morgan Fairchild and Linda Gray (who provided the actual leg for the infamous movie poster), it’s a still a timeless tale of soul-searching/crushing filled with witty remarks and tawdry tumbles. Sure beats Anatomy 101.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: March 2. Continues through March 30, 2013
