While shadow puppets can easily conform to a variety of roles, they are likely to disappear with the flick of a light switch or the mention of an opening in the Muppets. Revel in warm-blooded thespians with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get two adult tickets to The Solid Gold Cadillac at the Palace Theatre (up to a $44 value), playing on June 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, and 18 at 8 p.m. and on Sunday, June 12, at 2 p.m.
Ensconced in a heritage building, the Palace Theatre stages dramas, musicals, and other volunteer-driven entertainment, including the London Community Players' revival of The Solid Gold Cadillac, a satire about big business. Penned by Broadway wits Howard Teichmann and George S. Kaufman, the plot pits bigwigs against small-timers in the war between a mighty corporation and a minor shareholder. Originally built as a movie palace in 1929 and revamped for live theatre, the Palace still contains its historical charm and a mustachioed patron with Prohibition popcorn.
