It Can't Happen Here: One Night Only

In honor of the 75th anniversary of the Federal Theatre Project, two theatre groups here in Louisville are uniting for a reading of Sinclair Lewis's IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE.

Le Petomane and Theatre [502] will be offering a staged reading at the Iroquois Amphitheater at the Parkside Studio on Monday, October 24 at 8pm.  Tickets are just $1 and are available at us@lepetomane.org or 502-609-2520.

Last I heard, there are more than thirty local actors lined up for this reading, directed by Le Petomane's Greg Maupin.

This past weekend, I caught Theatre [502]'s HUNTER GATHERERS at the Victor Jory, which was rich and dark and delightful.  There are still three showings left of HUNTER GATHERERS-- go, go, go! (But note that the content is decidedly adult). And I'm already on record as being a (tragically late) recent convert to the wonderfulness of Le Petomane.

There's no way I would miss this reading based on those credentials alone.  The fact that they are repurposing an outdoor theatre space and creating a more intimate, quasi-indoor setting? So interesting!
