Two openings this weekend: New Candlelight Theatre and UD REP Ensemble


If memory serves, this is NCT's third annual Christmas show. It is billed as a kind of Best of Broadway of Christmas tunes;  "A holiday variety show full of holiday cheer for the entire family. Celebrate the season with this heartwarming production featuring your favorite "Candlelighters" singing and dancing to your favorite holiday classics."  

A great opportunity to get in the mood of the season and to bring the kids! NCT is also planning their own New Year's eve bash.

Of the five years of REP Ensemble, one of their opening shows, Moliere's IMAGINARY INVALID, ranks as one of AISLE SAY's favorites.  REP does farce extraordinarily well.  Their professional actors are born comedians.  These multitudinous talents, allied with the precise direction and sumptuous costumes constitutes a delightful night of the best theatre in the state. The first four nights are sold out, so others apparently feel likewise.

Hilarity abounds in this madcap Italian comedy of lovers, lawyers, servants, and twenty-seven plates of meatballs.  Betrothed couple Silvio and Clarice are devastated when a previous fiancé reappears, back-from-the-dead.  In this wild farce things, and people, are not what they seem – disguises, traps, and tricks produce a whirlwind of mass confusion.  At the center of this mirth is Truffaldino, the scheming – and perpetually hungry – servant who concocts a zany scheme to double his wages (and his meals) by serving two masters at once.  This commedia dell’arte masterpiece, hilariously adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher and Paolo Emilio Landi, promises laugh-out-loud mayhem that shouldn’t be missed!
