Livin’ Fat

Judi Ann Mason finds the funny in finding a stash of cash

What would you do if $50,000 dropped into your lap? You’d probably be pretty torn. That’s just how the Cooper family feels in Livin’ Fat when son David, a college student who’s working part time as a bank janitor, discovers loot that some robbers dropped. In playwright Judi Ann Mason’s comedy, which won the Norman Lear Award, morality and ethics definitely take second place to the laughs she mines from the family’s predicament. With credits like Sanford and Son and A Different World, Mason knows exactly what to do. 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays. Through May 24. The Ensemble Theatre, 3535 Main. For information, call 713-520-0055 or visit $18 to $35.
Sundays, 2 p.m.; Thursdays, 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, 2 & 8 p.m. Starts: May 3. Continues through May 24, 2009
