Our own Syd Loomis will be performing in a comedy called “Critic’s Choice” at Center Stage Theatre in Lebanon.  A New York theatre critic lives with his second wife and son from his first marriage to a glamorous New York actress. The new wife decides to write a play, there-in rises the dilemma. Does he go to the opening and write an honest critique, jeopardizing his marriage, or not attend the play, jeopardizing his job? Throw in the glamorous ex who wants him back, the producer who may or may not be making a play for his wife, and the sarcastic son who he pays to come up with one line zingers to use in his critiques, the Mother-in-law with her sage advice and you have a comedy which the New York Times called “fresh and funny”. Center Stage is a small and intimate venue seating only 50 patrons. Plan to reserve your tickets well in advance by calling 765-894-5587 or go to centerstagecommunitytheatre.com. Production dates are March 10,11,17,18,24,25 at 7:30 PM and March 12,19 and 26 at 2:30 PM.  Ticket prices are $13 for students and seniors (60 and over) or $15 for adults.
