Now in its 62nd season, Blackfriars Theatre showcases the rising talents of western New York on its intimate stage, seating all viewers no more than four rows away from the action. Adapted for the stage by Nora and Delia Ephron, Love, Loss, and What I Wore turns Ilene Beckerman's best-selling collection into a rollicking, relatable play described by the New York Times as "chick legit." Amid subtle staging, the show’s cast of five thespians uses prom dresses, uncomfortable shoes, and skimpy astronaut suits as the starting points and central symbols of monologues that weave together humor and the perils of being helplessly in love.
In the ‘50s and ‘60s, a Harvard-educated math professor named Tom Lehrer rose to national fame with his scandalous and hilarious songs that took a satirical approach to such topics as pollution, the military, racism, and mathematics. Tom Foolery brings a revue of such favorite tunes as "The Elements" and "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park," linking them together with comedic patter.
