Five Women Wearing the Same Dress 

When: Thursdays-Sundays, 7:30 p.m. Continues through Jan. 15 2012
Atlanta-born Alan Ball is best known as the writer of the film American Beauty and creator of cable TV’s Six Feet Under and True Blood. He’s also the author of this colorful play — as five Southern bridesmaids seek sanctuary from the pressures of the wedding and launch an estrogen-heavy rap session that ranges from touchy-feely sisterhood to confessions of promiscuity and lesbianism to revelations about possible sexual abuse. Men get analyzed, really tough issues (like abortion) get discussed and there are also enough wisecracks and boob-flashing to leaven the somberness. Last mounted locally in 2008 by Boiler Room Theatre, this sitcom-cum-satire finds new life at director George W. Manus’ Out Front on Main in the ’Boro. His cast — Molly Breen, Sherry Sunday Booth, Christy Eidson, Tara McBay, Lora Hortert, plus one lone male, Jason Barnes — may find the script provides, at the very least, an exploratory showcase for their talents. For audiences, the idea here is to laugh through your tears.
