Opening Nights

Clean House opens Friday, Jan. 9, at the Lord Leebrick Theatre. 

A depressed comedian who has to work as a cleaning woman to pay the bills; her employer, whose husband doesn’t quite remember how to hide the evidence of his indiscretions; her employer’s sister, who sympathizes with the comedian and helps her clean … Sarah Ruhl’s Clean House depicts women trying to deal with all kinds of messes with humor and a sense of the absurd. “A lyric comedy with an edge of darkness,” says director John Schmor. Show dates are Jan. 9-10, 15-18, 22-25 & 29-31. Tix at www.lordleebrick.com or 465-1506.

Where the Heck’s the Plot? opens Friday, Jan. 9, at Actors Cabaret of Eugene.

PR from ACE says this is “the story of a songwriter without a plot, producers without a show and a girlfriend with a lot of patience! It’s a tuneful, romantic romp filled with hummable songs and clever lyrics.” Also, Where the Heck writer Charles Nathan is a local famous guy, so there you have it. Should be some kind of interesting. Show dates are Jan. 9-11 & 16-18. Tix at www.actorscabaret.org or 683-4368.
