The Magnetic Theatre presents Playing With Our Food
Mar 18 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
The Magnetic Theatre - ONLINE

So, how have you been staying sane during the past year of lockdown?
That’s the question The Magnetic Theatre asked one “quaranteam” of actors, and while it remains to be seen how much sanity they’ve maintained, the answer is, “Playing With Our Food!” Get ready for a weird, wild, hilarious feast of gustatory one-act plays selected, directed, and performed by Tabitha Judy, Strother Stingley, and Tippin.

Each taking turns at the directing trough, this “food group” of artists serves up a heaping helping of dark comedy, absurdity, and silliness in the course of four quirky short plays by playwrights from around the country. “Three Women and an Onion,” written by Ryan Bultrowicz, finds a Kafkaesque purgatory in an errant allium. Evan Baughfman’s “The Last Beans in the Box” explores the secret lives of young wizards’ least favorite sweets. Jackie Martin’s “Cookies for Bethany” warns of the dangers of taking things that aren’t yours. And “37 Scenes, and a Watermelon,” by Ian Downes, asks the question, “Do they always cry so much?”

So, order some dinner, get comfy with your TV tray, and tuck in to this smorgasbord of tasty theatrical tidbits, delivered via live-stream direct to your living room!

Jay Leno at the Peace Center
Apr 11 @ 7:00 pm
Peace Center

Acclaimed late-night TV host, admired stand-up comedian, best-selling children’s book author, in-demand corporate speaker, lovable voice-over artist, pioneering car builder and mechanic, and philanthropist… it’s no wonder Jay Leno is widely characterized as “the hardest working man in show business.”

Leno’s late-night TV ratings domination included more than two decades of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, winning every consecutive quarter he hosted. The Tonight Show was honored with an Emmy® Award for Outstanding Comedy, Variety or Music Series and took home the trophy for “Favorite Late-Night Show” in the annual TV Guide Awards determined by voting viewers. Leno was recently installed in the Television Academy’s Broadcast Hall of Fame.

Having passed the torch of Tonight Show succession to Jimmy Fallon, Leno has increased his customary busy schedule of comedy performances in top venues around the United States and abroad. He also continues his Emmy-winning web venture relating to his passion for automobiles, Jay Leno’s Garage.

Call it “musical comedy heaven” (Rolling Stone). Call it “the most uproarious new musical in years!” (The Hollywood Reporter). Call it Tootsie!

This laugh-out-loud love letter to the theater tells the story of Michael Dorsey, a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until one show-stopping act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime. Featuring a hilarious Tony®-winning book by Robert Horn and an outrageously clever score by 2018 Tony winner David Yazbek (The Band’s VisitDirty Rotten Scoundrels), this New York Times Critic’s Pick is “a joyful delight” (The Washington Post) that’s “so packed with punchlines, it should be called a jokebox musical!” (Bloomberg). “In these turbulent times, when the world seems out of balance, we need a place to let the good times roll,” raves Rolling Stone. “Tootsie is it!”
