August 25 – September 12, 2010

"Noises Off" pushes farce as far as it can go, following the onstage and backstage antics of a fifth-rate acting troupe touring in a new, horribly-written sex farce called Nothing On. The curtain opens on the dress rehearsal of the first act the night before it opens and with things not going well. In the second act we hear the first act of Nothing On from backstage as the wheels start to come after a month touring on the road. The third act takes us to the second month of touring.  It is, deliciously so, a hilarious disaster with each act packed with more laughs than the one before it. Phoenix Theatre is a not-for-profit corporation that offers a full range of theatrical programming currently in its 90th season. 100 E. McDowell Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85004. Phone: 602-889-6318.
