Theatre on the Square: “The Money Shot”
Photography: ZACH ROSING
Poster design: LORI RAFFEL
Neil LaBute’s darkly funny look at all things Hollywood. Steve (Earl Campbell) and Karen (Sarah McGee), screen idols past their peak in desperate need of a hit, have assembled in her Hollywood hills home to discuss a sensitive professional matter with their respective partners. But before they commit their coupling to digital eternity, they want to clear it with Bev (LisaMarie Smith), Karen’s live-in girlfriend, and Missy (Lauren Hall), Steve’s much younger wife. The meeting starts nasty, turns nastier, and is consistently hilarious.

Phoenix Theatre: “An Act of God”
In this sinfully funny new play, the Almighty and His devoted Angels answer some of the deepest existential questions to ever plague mankind. He’s returned to set the record straight…and he’s not holding back! The stage play is adapted from Javerbaum’s “The Last Testament: A Memoir By God,” which itself began as “a series of Tweets.”

Mud Creek Players: “Rabbit Hole”
“Rabbit Hole” is a Pulitzer Prize-winning, contemporary American drama with a huge heart and good-natured sense of humor. We meet Becca and Howie, a successful, professional couple, some months after the loss of their only child in a terrible accident. While the soul of the story reflects the struggles of a family learning to cope with their loss, it is in the subtle humor of real life that we are invited to explore what it means to be human: to love, to laugh, to lose and to keep on living. Rated PG13.
