Legendary entertainers Kenan and Kel made theatrical history when they broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well.

Dark and funny, No Way to Treat a Lady chronicles the exploits of obsessive serial killer Christopher Gill. Haunted and hypnotized by his late mother's memory, Gill seeks out other actresses who remind him of her, and then chokes them dead. A full can stocked with suspense, humor, and music, No Way to Treat a Lady packs in more wicked fun than a Bride of Frankenstein–themed wedding.
Founded in 1920, Phoenix Theatre has delivered 90 years of innovative entertainment to combat conventional paint-drying performances. Two tickets for Tier 2 seating let you and a loved one, beautician, or John Waters snuggle up for an evening of hair-raising entertainment.
- … “No Way To Treat a Lady” is an unabashedly histrionic romp with plenty of laughs, a fair share of romance and a welcome abundance of drollery. – F. Kathleen Foley, Los Angeles Times
Originally established as the Phoenix Players in 1920, Phoenix Theatre operated out of the Phoenix Little Theatre for almost 30 years before settling into its current location. The 1952 building would become the core of the city’s cultural area, later drawing such establishments as the Phoenix Art Museum and Phoenix Library. The company’s current performance space does little to draw the audience’s attention away from the stage, save for the crisscross of industrial railings that support the catwalks and the retired jerseys of older playwrights.
