Everybody can use a laugh. It’s always in the worst times that we need some escape, and there’s no better escape than comedy. Good comedy, that is. And when a company that continues to do surprising, innovative and hilarious work creates a show about a dancing girl, a reclusive poet, a marine artist and a founding father adrift on a lifeboat, then you have yourself a classic … or at least a show worth checking out. Le Petomane, whether producing brand-new works or creating a fantastical twist on classics, keeps an audience on their toes. And, more importantly, they keep their work accessible. So take advantage of the sliding scale (they’re worth the most you can give, by the way), and see something original with a twist of comedy. —Laura Morton
