Take a pad and pencil with you when you see Merkel, because while there are only two actors, Julia Laskowski and Patti Rabaza, there are dozens of characters. Youll need to take notes in order to keep them all straight. Laskowski and Rabaza wrote the two-woman musical, which takes a farcical look at the residents of Merkel, a tiny town inhabited by psychics, nuts and oddballs. 7:30 p.m. today, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Third Coast Comedy, 2317 West 34th Street. For tickets and information, call 713263-9899 or visit www.inchwormproductions.com. $30.
