When Dad Comes Out of the Closet…

A perversely protective mother-son relationship, a taxidermied dad hanging patiently in the closet, and a disgruntled pet piranha swimming in satire? I know what you’re thinking: “Is this the next installation of R. Kelly’s hip-hopera sensation ‘Trapped in the Closet’?” No! It’s even more absurd, literally. Tuesday, the Ghost Light Series presents a one-night-only reading of Arthur Kopit’s absurdist-themed play Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mamma’ s Hung You in the Closet and I’m Feelin’ So Sad, (subtitled: “A Pseudoclassical Tragifarce in a Bastard French Tradition”) at the Main Street Playhouse (6766 Main Street, Miami Lakes). The reading begins at 8 p.m., and it’s free. Call 954-270-0998.
