Taproot Theatre, 204 N. 85th St., opens its 2017 season this week with the comedy “Room Service” by John Murray and Allen Boretz.
Madcap mishaps and little lies take on lives of their own as a theatrical troupe chases their dream of Broadway. Or Off-Broadway. Make that Off-Off-Broadway. Laugh yourself silly with this hit comedy that inspired a Marx Brothers classic.
“Room Service” opens for previews on Wednesday and Thursday, with opening night on Friday. It runs through March 4. It is recommended for ages 12 and up.
Special dates for the production include: Post-play discussions with theater staff and cast members after every Wednesday performance and after the midweek matinee performances on Feb. 15 at 10 a.m. and Feb. 7 at 2:00pm.; Pay-What-You-Can performance at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 8 (limited number of $10 tickets available at noon that day, with name-your-own-price beginning at 5 p.m.); Intergenerational Matinee at 10 a.m. Feb. 15 ($10 student/chaperone tickets, play guides and a guided post-play discussion); Senior Matinees at 2 p.m. on Feb. 7 and March 1.
