Bring your own, well, anything to the Stuart & Shelby Theater at Arts Garage this month where you will laugh at scenes from The Mystery of Love and Sex, a romantic comedy about sexual and emotional protocol according to two couples.
By BYOA, they really do mean, ANYTHING: you own alcohol, food, cutlery, cups, the whole nine.
The play is inviting to the young and old with characters like Charlotte, a Jewish college student who falls in love with her childhood best friend, Johnny, a black man. And Charlotte’s traditional parents, who scramble to keep up as their daughter’s sexual desires begin to complicate their own relationship.
We haven’t seen the show yet but have a feeling it’ll be compelling to watch an interracial couple open up about their sex lives to a parochial set of parents who realize they may need to revisit the fundamentals of their own relationship and sex life.
In fact, the New York Times called it “a perfectly wonderful new play…a tender and funny exploration of the lives of two couples from two generations….like a chart depicting the sexual and emotional anatomy of us all.”
General admission tickets will cost you $30, but you can save $5 on a preview showing on Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 7:30 p.m. If you decide to bring your own booze, wine or food, you can purchase reserved or premium table seating for $40 or $45. (Don’t forget cutlery!)
