3800 Elizabeth: A Sitcom For the Stage

Although I'll be plugging the final Saturday Night Saloon event in these pages very soon, I'll pause for a moment to actually plug a show I'm not directly involved in (that I'm looking forward to) featuring some Nosedive alum that takes place the following day in the same venue.

Beginning this Sunday, February 3, The Welding Club presents 3800 Elizabeth, a "sitcom for the stage."

According to co-writer and director Aaron Baker, 3800 Elizabeth follows the absurd non-adventures of Germanophile bartender AJ, his hypochondriac ex-girlfriend Sonja and his recently-moved-to- the-big-city-from-a-slightly-smaller-city childhood friend Mike.

Each week, Mike will make impractical life decisions, Sonja will think about Jane Eyre, AJ will offer up witty rejoinders along with Gibsons and Old Fashioneds and quite possibly we'll all learn a valuable (or maybe not-so-valuable) lesson.
