Blackfriars Theatre has released the details of its 64th season, which will start in October 2013 and run through June 2014.
The season begins this fall with "Me and Jezebel" (October 18-November 2), a comedy starring local drag legends Aggy Dune and Kasha Davis about actress Bette Davis coming to dinner at a fan's home and deciding to stay a while.
The Mitch Albom tearjerker "Tuesdays with Morrie" will run November 15-24, with the holiday season seeing the return of last year's successful "It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play" and the return of the one-man show "The Santaland Diaries," an adaptation of the David Sedaris short story.
The new year will start with the comedy "Boeing Boeing" (January 24-February 8), about a playboy romancing three airline stewardesses who all end up together at the same time. That's followed by the quirky comedy "The HOT L Baltimore" (March 28-April 12), about the residents of a run-down hotel being forced out of the condemned structure.
The new season will wrap with Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical adaptation of the Hollywood classic "Sunset Boulevard" (May 16-June 14), so get ready for your close-ups for Mr. DeMille.
Blackfriars Theatre is located at 795 E. Main St. Subscriptions for the new season cost $105-$150 for the five shows (holiday shows not included); single tickets cost $28.50-$39.50, with $3 senior discounts for those 60 and older.
