Shreveport Little Theatre is adding three performances to its current production of the comedy Lying in State, says director Robert Darrow.

Alex Kent wrote that "Strong character work and well-told political jokes make this comedy SLT's best of the season."

"Director Robert Darrow unleashes energetic cast members who paint their characters as grotesque, editorial cartoon-style caricatures. The more we realize they grossly exaggerate every little (and hopefully untrue) flaw, the more we laugh," said Kent.

The cast features Joe Todaro, Marcia Cassanova, Jack Shields, Bill Pou, Reagan Cassanova, Gregg A. Ashley and Jennifer Jackson. Robert Darrow directs.

Added dates: Fri, Mar 23, Sat, Mar 24, at 8 p.m.
Sun, Mar 25 at 2 p.m.
Previously announced performances are March 9, 10, 16, 17 at 8 p.m. and March 11, 18 at 2 p.m.

$15 adults; $13 seniors, students & active military.

Box office: noon to 4:00 p.m. weekdays.

These "hee haw/yahoo" plays have gotten extremely boring. It seems SLT has been doing the same show with a different title for years now. They've become the Wal-Mart of local theatre.
Good people are involved but it's really become embarassing.
