Personals Uncut Dec. 3- 11, Kennedy's Theatre, Delivered in monologues, this comedy about online dating has a colorful cast of characters ranging from the classic weirdo to the honest, everyday person. "Everyone can relate to the dating scene and the awkwardness of first dates," says writer, director and producer Jennifer Griffin.
The New Century Dec. 9- Jan. 9, Dobama Theatre, Parents of gay children are pushed out of their comfort zones in this comedy, which is told through a series of monologues and vignettes. "They're going to laugh their ass off," says director Scott Plate. "It's funny and incredibly moving at the same time."
Conni's Avant Garde Restaurant Dec. 2- 19, Cleveland Public Theatre, Think Rocky Horror Picture Show meets dinner theater inside a bizarre restaurant — this campy, rock 'n' roll show includes cabaret, improv comedy and a five-course meal. "It's going to be quirky and unique," says Raymond Bobgan, executive artistic director. "It's not something you could normally see in Cleveland."
