For 65 years, the artistic staff at Baton Rouge Little Theater has enriched the local community with theatrical opportunities and brought the work of great playwrights to a subscriber base that extends across the country. Their performance of It Runs in the Family festoons the Main Stage Theatre with Ray Cooney's farce about the misfortunes of the ambitious Dr. David Mortimer on his way to deliver a lecture that could make his career. En route to his goal, Mortimer must face a paternity suit, a disgruntled ex-wife, an absurd assortment of hospital denizens, and the prospect that British audiences will refuse to call him doctor without a PhD. London's Sunday Express said the play "tickles the funny bones quite shamelessly," though it displays enough decorum to earn BRLT's PG rating.
Each of the Main Stage Theatre's 327 seats is on the ground level, giving audiences the experience of sitting in the front orchestra of a much larger house. The absence of a center aisle allows room for more front and center seats and prevents hazardous potato-sack races from taking place during intermission.
