A Nutty Scandal

Well, if you didn't know it already, Down in Front Theater company is about to make you go Nuts! with its first performance of the new year. Bringing you a rather dark performance about a young prostitute named Claudia Draper who is indicted for manslaughter after killing one of her gentleman callers in the name of self-defense, Nuts! is going to put all of those courtroom TV shows to shame. Set in a courtroom in the psychiatric wing of Bellevue Hospital in New York City, the plot thickens as Claudia's mother and stepfather try to meddle with the outcome of the case in an effort to hide their daughter's dark past and reasons for becoming a prostitute. Because her parents are more concerned with their own reputation than the fact that their daughter could end up in a psychiatric facility, Claudia must jump through hurdles to prove her sanity. For only a few short weeks, Nuts! will be featured at the Sunrise Soref JCC, located at 6501 W. Sunrise Blvd. in Plantation, beginning Saturday at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $15 each or two for $20 and can be purchased online by visiting ourtownscene.org or calling 954-792-6700.
Saturdays, 2 & 8 p.m.; Sundays, 4:30 p.m. Starts: Jan. 11. Continues through Feb. 2, 2014
