Phone: Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800-838-3006 or (512) 484-1242
Originally workshopped to great acclaim as a one-act in Vermont, and later at the Frontera Fest Short Fringe in 2003 (where it was recognized as a Best-of-Fest selection), Leave it to Beverly subverts the classic sit-com genre through three interconnected acts (Leave it to Beverly, Trixie Knows Best, and Make Room for Lorraine). Each fast-paced and bizarre episode features an archetypal TV female confronting her artificial universe in hilarious and unexpected ways.
Guaranteed to leave you craving the good ol' days of Nick-at-Nite (but with a twist), Leave it to Beverly confronts consumerism, turns gender roles upside-down, and celebrates the elusive mysteries of Tupperware, Astroturf, and Mr. Clean.
