The Albany County Theatre is excited to invite you to its next production:  “An Adult Evening of Shel Silverstein”.

Explore the darkly comic world of Shel Silverstein, a world where nothing is as it seems and where the most innocent conversation can turn menacing in an instant. The ten imaginative plays in this collection range widely in content, but the style is unmistakable.  The master wordsmith turns his focus from children to more mature audiences.  From a woman who is slowly transforming into a bag lady to a pair of rhyming prostitutes, Silverstein’s dialogue is creative, surprising and at some points almost unnerving.

From A CurtainUp Review by Elyse Sommer “…Since Silverstein was first and most famously a cartoonist, perhaps the best way to categorize all of this is as a medley of dramatized cartoons.  Comedy skits, playlets, one-acters, cartoons — call them what you will, most are intent on tickling the funny bone though, as with any cartoon, there are subtexts to be extracted from at least a few.  If some are more dry chuckles than belly laughs, well that’s typical of most such collections.”

It may not be fun for the whole family, but it will certainly be fun…
