The Underpants

April 1, 2011 8:00PM  to  April 23, 2011 10:00PM

Described by The New York Times as “laugh-out-loud funny,” The Underpants is about a puritanical bureaucrat and his wife Louise, who becomes an instant celebrity when her underpants accidentally fall down in public. Steve Martin uses saucy jokes, witty wordplay, slamming doors, and sophisticated literary style to lampoon our contemporary culture’s fascination with fame.

Beck Center’s production of The Underpants is sponsored by FIT Technologies, Cox Communications, Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, and Ohio Arts Council.

Steve Martin’s adaptation of a play by Carl Sternheim
Directed by Matthew Earnest
