Texas Premiere!

A strong, bitter comedy about women scorned in Minnesota and the really, really nice gangsters—Norwegian hit men—they hire to whack their ex-boyfriends. Olive is a transplant from Texas and Betty is a transplant from Kentucky, but neither of them was prepared for the Norwegian men they would fall in love with there: the practical, warm, thoughtful, destructive, evil, jilting kind. If you’re a hit man in Minnesota, 83% of your clients want to take out their ex (oofda!). Betty has referred Olive to Gus and Tor, a partnership in the whacking business. What Tor doesn’t know is that Gus has been sleeping with the clients. What Olive doesn’t know is that Gus is Betty’s ex, and she has already put out a hit on him with a Swiss firm. Can Betty call off the job in time to let Gus do his? Should she? (some adult language)

Anton in Show Business 
By Jane Martin
7:30pm | Thurs., Fri. & Sat.
3pm | Sun.
Jesse H. and Mary Gibbs Jones Theater

A hilarious backstage comedy based on three actresses who chase their dreams. The story follows Lisbette, the naïve, small town girl, Casey, the aging struggling actress, and Holly, the self-absorbed and surgically enhanced TV actress as they are cast in an ill-fated production of Anton Chekhov’s “Three Sisters” in San Antonio. The Artistic Director has decided to have seven actresses attempt to play fifteen characters, both male and female, since men get all the good parts. Anton in Show Business conveys the joys, pains, and absurdities of putting on a play, while poking fun at American culture.

Winner of the 2001 American Theatre Critics Steinberg New Play Award.

“A smart, acerbic crowd pleaser… Simultaneously a love letter and a poison pen letter to the American theatre.” – Variety

“Funny, smart, wry and poignant.” - Miami Herald
