All is fair in love and war...and comedy, actually. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet's "Romance" is a courtroom comedy that satirizes each character, from lawyers and judges, to Arabs and Jews, to gays and chiropractors. An anti-histamine-popping judge gets doped up on his own medicine, and law and order wither away into utter chaos while he hears the testimonies of a Jewish chiropractor, who squabbles with his anti-Semitic defense attorney, and a gay prosecutor who squabbles with his lover, all the while, a Middle East peace conference is taking place.
On Thursday, February 21, at 7:30 p.m. Limelight Productions will present "Romance" at MuCCC (142 Atlantic Ave.). The show will continue through March 1, with 7:30 p.m. shows on Thursdays through Saturdays, and a 2 p.m. matinee show on Sunday, February 24. Tickets are $16 in advance ($14 for seniors and students), $20 at the door ($18 for seniors and students), and February 21 will be a pay-what-you-will performance. Theatre-goers should consider themselves warned that the show includes strong language, and is recommended for mature audiences.
