"A play within a play, done playfully...Every actor holds their own, with Elizabeth McCoy as the ditzy ingenue shining amongst them. Eric Porter’s set design is astounding, and as two-faced as the characters themselves. I won’t tell you what they do to the set for Act II, but it elicited a 'Wow!' from most people seated near me." --Outalldaynola.com

This play within a play is a fond look at the follies of theatre folk, whose out-of-control egos, lack of skill, and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure. A touring theatre troupe’s production of a sex comedy called Nothing On is on view here from start to un-finish: their dress rehearsal, the opening performance, and a performance towards the end of a debilitating run. The show is a delightful window into the inner workings of theatre, progressing and regressing from dress rehearsal mishaps to friction between cast members in the final performance. This delightful backstage farce comes complete with slamming doors, falling trousers, and flying sardines! 

Audience Alert: This show is rated PG-13 for mature content throughout (it is a sex comedy/farce!)
