Woody Allen has been making moviegoers laugh, and cry, generally be confused, and then probably laugh again since the 1960s. Even decades later, he still does it once a year with a new flick. And after so much time in the business of show, it's wild to think that Woody is bigger than ever since Midnight in Paris introduced his peculiar wit to the younger masses. With Blue Jasmine currently in theaters, it's clear the dude owns the silver screen. But how will his unique brand of funny translate to the stage? There is only one way to find out.
The Lake Worth Playhouse is giving us all the chance to discover another side of Woody's writing, the one that produces plays. One-act plays, to be precise. Two of them, to be accurate. And we can't wait, to be honest. Set in and around New York (real shocker), these short plays will hit the stage back to back on six consecutive nights to give Woody fans everywhere something really special: a new medium to critique.
Two Woody Allen one-act plays, Riverside Drive and Central Park West, will be at the Stonzek Movie Theatre (709 Lake Ave., Lake Worth), located east of the Lake Worth Playhouse, from Thursday to Tuesday, October 3 to 8. Showtime is 2 p.m. October 6 and 8 p.m. all other days. Tickets cost $15. Call 561-586-6410, or visit lakeworthplayhouse.org.
