Talk about a midlife crisis: Henry Flemming decides to dump his profitable brokerage company so that he can launch a new career as a detective in Sam Babricks comedy, Flemming, (An American Thriller).

Flemmings very first case involves a quickly growing pile of dead bodies, and although his wife and neighbors are increasingly concerned about Flemmings new line of work (each day he comes home more and more unkempt, with new cuts and bruises), hes having the time of his life. 8:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 3 p.m. May 2 and 9.
