Ever have a time when your head is so full of colliding thoughts and random noises that you want to find the first quiet empty room and hide? Have a day when your “can-do list” feels more like your “never can-do list”? Have a day when it’s so darn cold outside you nearly freeze your _____ off while dashing for the morning Courier-Journal? Welcome to my world.

But, there is a cure for our daily drama:  Drama! Okay – comedy! Actors Theatre’s production of It Takes A ‘Ville! to be exact. This wondrous production at our own Actors Theatre by the comedy powerhouse Second City will clear your head and lighten your heart. In my current world of ever-so-serious, this production is most definitely not-so-serious.

Tonight, I’m grabbing my wife and my friends and heading straight to  for the 8 p.m. curtain. Tickets are selling like hotcakes, so click here and get yours this very second!  This prescription of instant relief with a very heavy dose of laughter will cure all ills. Gee whiz, I’ll bet you know a few friends of your own who would benefit from an Actors Theatre “vacation”, why not buy them a ticket?

Best,
