Segment 2:

Sometimes the funniest theatre is about theatre itself. Pioneer Theatre Company’s Artistic Director Charles Morey’s Laughing Stock was first produced by PTC in 2001, and has since been produced nearly a hundred times across the U.S. Now, it’s returned to PTC, running through April 7. Centering on a summer theatre dubbed The Playhouse, comedy ensues when things go terribly wrong.

Guests:

  •  Actress Cheryl Gaysunas, “Sarah McKay”
  •  Actor Jack Koenig, “Gordon Page”
  •  Actor Anderson Matthews, “Richfield Hawksley”
