The Big -Five- OH
by Brian Mitchell
Whoever said life is better after fifty had better be right. George Thomas is turning fifty on Saturday, and it has been a terrible week. His dog is sick, his son is a slacker, and his daughter wants to marry a Republican. He has a neurotic wife and a widowed neighbor that provide many challenges that even George can overcome. Through these trying days, George will discover the wonders of family.
The Big Five Oh is a hilarious, sometimes touching account of a grown man coming to terms with his age.

The current play, The Philadelphia Story, was well-done and had the audience laughing almost from the opening curtain.

My friends and I really love this venue and we have enjoyed several plays at the First Avenue Playhouse and we all agreed that this one was one of the very best.
