Although I’ve not encountered any other kind, Unnecessary Farce by Paul Slade Smith is, well, an unnecessary farce. No one needs to see a crop of oddballs sprinting about a stage (frequently sans pants) opening one door, slamming another, lobbing double-entendres out to the house before the curtain finally extinguishes the frenzy.
The Covedale Center for the Performing Arts’ Unnecessary Farce is the perfect chaser for Evita, the theater’s brooding season opener.
Got all that?
Unnecessary Farce, presented by Covedale Center for the Performing Arts, continues through Nov. 14. Go here to read Harper Lee's full review and to get ticket/venue details.
