An Evening of Comedy and Drama: ‘Not Dead Yet!’ Takes the Stage
Looking for a night of comedy and theatrical flair? Bacchae Productions has got you covered with “Not Dead Yet!”—a reading of two comedy one-acts, followed by a party for attendees. Hosted at the Brooklyn Center for Theater Research on 249 Huron Street, the event takes place this Friday night, with doors opening at 7:00 PM and the curtain rising at 7:30 PM. The first play, “Ugly on the Inside” by Steven & Whitney Boe, unravels a chaotic Las Vegas wedding day where the groom meets an untimely—and “apparently” not the first—end. The second act, “Death of Beth” by Daniel Glenn, explores existential comedy as Beth learns a life-altering truth about mortality. The evening features performances by Meg Spectre, Healy Knight, and Conor Andrew Hall and is produced by Elliott Snyder, directed by Anna Bikales, and stage-managed by Stephanie Saywell. Tickets are $24 here.
