'Five Women Wearing the Same Dress'
Oct. 16, 2009
KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University Theatre will present "Five Women Wearing the Same Dress" Oct. 29-Nov. 8 in Williams Theatre at WMU's Gilmore Theatre Complex.
"Five Women Wearing the Same Dress" is written by Alan Ball (Six Feet Under, America Beauty). In this wickedly witty production, five renegade bridesmaids bicker and banter, finally forming a bond as they hide out from an overblown wedding reception and one crazed bride. Celebrate the absurd and hysterical antics particular to weddings--and be thankful this one doesn't involve you.
Bridesmaids--Here's your chance to wear that dress again. Patrons who sport their best or tackiest bridesmaid's attire to the theatre the night of the performance can receive 50 percent off their ticket price. The discount only applies to full-price and senior-citizen tickets purchased the night of the performance. Students in wedding wear will receive a coupon for one free student ticket to use on a future visit to the University Theatre.
