Albee’s play will be accompanied by Salty Dog, a comedy by Edge Artistic Director Jim Tommaney (he’s also a theater critic for the Houston Press). The pairing is a fitting one, as Tommaney’s comedy underscores the thematic content of The Zoo Story by bringing it into the contemporary context of reality television. The premise? An 84-year-old man attempts to become a contestant on the 28th iteration of Survivor. To become the last man standing, he’ll have to survive seven weeks in the subway system of New York City. Laughs are sure to be abundant. 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 3 p.m. Sundays. Through July 15. Midtown Art Center, 3414 La Branch.
Fridays-Sundays. Starts: June 29. Continues through July 15, 2012
