About this show

Medicine Show concludes their "War & Peace" themed season with Pleasures of Peace, a breezy and funny theatrical revue of plays, music, jokes, and improv comedy all centered around the general theme of Peace. Among the gems in this eclectic evening: Howard Pflanzer's stage adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's Perilous Play, about a group of young socialites who enjoy bonbons laced with hashish, Oscar Wilde's The Model Millionaire, about an impoverished man who sees his fortunes change through a selfless act of kindness, and John Gruen's new one-act Guards In Love, about a Buckingham Palace guard and a Vatican guard who compare notes on their respective lives after a night of passionate love-making. Intertwined with the plays are several new short works (by David Nugent and Susan Yankowitz), as well as poems from lyricist E.Y. "Yip" Harburg's "Rhymes for the Irreverent," set to new music by Lenny Hat.
