Great Recommendation for a Fun Night Out

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

If you love live theatre and love a great laugh, I have the perfect recommendation..go see Don’t Dress For Dinner at the North Coast Repertory Theatre. This comedy is fun, mystery, adult humor and lots of laughs. The talented actors deliver performances filled with humorous twists and turns that leave you marveling at the brilliance of the writers.dinner

Set in a weekend house in the French countryside, a husband’s romantic adulterous weekend is disturbed when his wife decides to stay for the weekend as well (upon discovery that her lover–her husband’s alibi– will also be there). From that point on each tries to cover up their affair and in doing so they pull others into the mess, creating side-splitting entertainment.

If you are not shy about or do not take offense to adult humor, I highly recommend this play. It is an encore performance and is only playing through August 2, so go online or call and order tickets. If you have not visited the North Coast Rep, it is truly one of treasures of North County. It is an intimate playhouse in Solana Beach and there is not a bad seat in the house.

For tickets go online to www.northcoastrep.org or call 858-481-1055. Here’s a $5 savings for you on tickets too…just mention this code when you call the box office, or enter it at checkout online: eclub5dd4d. Enjoy!
