Indie Chi Productionshas added four performances to the previously announced run ofThe Snake Can, extending through March 2 at the Odyssey Theatre.
Kathryn Graf's comic drama, which looks at the perils of dating in middle age, received critical acclaim and has been playing to sold-out houses since it opened in January. Diane Cary, Jane Kaczmarek and Sharon Sharth portray three successful women who challenge themselves to find love and personal fulfillment in the middle years of life. The production also stars James Lancaster,Gregory Harrison and Joel Polis, with Paul Lieber stepping in to replace Harrison beginning February 14. Steven Robman directs.
In a "Critic's Choice" review, the Los Angeles Times praises The Snake Can's "pertinence, humor and heart" and it's "edgy hilarity." The LA Weekly writes, "Pick of the Week... [The Snake Can] perfectly captures the easy and sparkling conversation-the kind that always resumes midsentence-among three longtime female friends." BroadwayWorld finds the production "engrossing from start to finish... a satisfying evening of intelligent theater," and Performing Arts Live calls it "fun and highly rewarding." Arts In LA says, "The surprise popping out of this production, like the snake out of the can, is its submerged depth."
Performances of The Snake Can continue on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays @ 8 pm and Sundays @ 2 pm and 7 pm, through March 2, with one additional matinee on Saturday, March 2 @ 3 pm. Tickets are $25 on Thursdays and Fridays and $30 on Saturdays and Sundays; full time students with ID and seniors are $20. The Odyssey Theatre is located at 2055 S.
