Seasonal Special Happenings

Texting Encouraged

When: Fri., Nov. 29 2013

Cleveland Public Theatre is known for breaking new ground in the theater community. Their works stretch the boundaries and limitations of storytelling; their incorporation of music and dance has brought together artists worldwide in collaboration; and now, embracing what was the bane of many audience members, they're breaking the rules of texting during a performance. For what may be the first time ever, audiences are not only encouraged to leave their phones on, but to use them, during the new play Doug is a D-Bag. Conceived and directed by Renee Schilling, this highly courageous piece about inter-office romance, love, texting and douchebags breaks the fourth wall in the most post-modern ways imaginable. The show starts at 7 tonight and performances continue through Dec. 14 in the Storefront Studio. On Dec. 7, there's also a special 10:30 late show for only $12 (admission includes a free drink). Tickets range from $12 to $18. (Stoops)
