What You'll Get
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. Experience the magic of the stage with today's Groupon: for $9, you get a ticket to any show at Theatre Conspiracy (an $18 value), located on McGregor Boulevard.
A local nonprofit, Theatre Conspiracy showcases modern works by aspiring auteurs hoping to become the next Tennessee Williams or “Mississippi” Bill Shakespeare. Sprawl among the audience as the curtain opens, a hush falls, and the actors re-create timeless themes in a contemporary setting. Catch the theater’s current play, Frank Lloyd Wright, a one-man show on the renowned architect’s work and tumultuous life. Or, feast your eyes on an upcoming production, such as Medea, the ancient Greek tale of betrayal and revenge, or Shipwrecked! An Entertainment, a storytelling adventure into the nature of truth, the tall tale, and the time John Henry ate an entire whale in one gulp. Until June, each month will feature a new play with matinee and evening show times.
- "Searching for Eden" pokes at the prickly stereotypes of being paired as it rotates history's oldest duet through two hours of couples counseling. Yet, the show never seems old - thanks to peppy staging and two winning actors. – Chris Silk, Naples Daily News, review of Searching for Eden
- Once the tiara jokes start, the laughs keep rolling like ankles in a pair of high heels walking across a gravel parking lot. – Chris Silk, Coastal Beat review of Cynthia's Lament
