Great concept, amazing delivery, not so good comedy

Put Your Hands Together for Woody Shticks and Pearl Lam at 18th and Union

Comedians Pearl Lam and Woody Shticks come together in a versatile, expressive, true-to-the-times comedy, and use laughter to deal with complex topics of childhood trauma, violence, animal endangerment, sexual freedom, queerness and identity. All the while dabbing into nonsensical skits that help lighten the mood of the overall performance. In truth, it’s a great combination of themes and emotions but that needs a high level of precision to be pulled off.

Not / Our Town: New or Old Play?

Most people probably know Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, winner of a Pulitzer, a Tony, and a Drama Desk award. With thousands of productions from high school theatre to Broadway, it even has a street in New Hampshire dedicated to it. If you don’t know it, don’t worry, you can still watch Pony World Theatre’s production without a hitch, as it sets up its audience with a summary of the original Our Town before diving into their rendition. Wilder’s play takes place in the small town of New Hampshire, Grover’s Corners, where nothing really happens in the relative peacefulness of the early 1900s. As such, the play is about community and small towns and appreciating even the uneventful in life.
