Celebrating the most exciting election year in decades, Radio Music Theatres come up with a brand new comedy called Electile Dysfunction, featuring a whole new cast of wacky characters. Hailing from a make-believe Houston neighborhood called Precious Trees, the most planned planned community, the family at the center of the story is in an uproar over who should be president. Moms recently switched from Hillary to Obama; Dad backs McCain; and Junior wants anarchy, so hes voting for Dog Spranger, a candidate whos got zero delegates but wont drop out of the race.
Swirling in the background are all sorts of Houston-like institutions, including the worlds largest church its so big its built from a ranch thats been domed over (theres still cattle grazing out back). Then theres the Spy Eye News Team, a group of newscasters any Houstonian will immediately recognize. But that shouldnt scare away visitors to our fair city. Steve Farrell, creator of and performer in Electile Dysfunction, assures us that even Northerners love the play. 8:30 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 8 and 10:30 p.m. Saturdays. Through November 15. 2623 Colquitt. For information, call 713-522-7722 or visit www.radiomusictheatre.com. $22.
