Mamafied, is a solo comedy about motherhood: “…Susanna Brisk hilariously chronicles her struggles with pre-partum depression, having two kids less than a year apart and the resulting hormonal havoc. The everyday realities of parenting prove too much for this Jewish Australian Princess, as she tries desperately to appear normal for her kids, slapping on a phony smile and saying “Mommy’s crying because she’s happy.” The show previews tonight.
8:30 pm // Edgemar Center For The Arts // 2437 Main St., Santa Monica // $20.
Here’s a story of … A Very Brady Musical. Yup, the TV show has been transformed for the stage. Here’s the premise for this Shakespearean epic: The Brady kids overhear their parents having an argument and think they’re headed for divorce, but Mike and Carol are just trying to get their groove on(something they haven’t done in while because, well, they have six kids in the house). The gala reception’s tonight and will be hosted be Christopher Knight a/k/a Peter Brady.
8 am // Theatre West // 3333 Cahuenga Blvd. West, Los Angeles // $60 for gala tickets.
