This holiday season, Women in Theatre recommends giving the gift of laughter and fine dining to someone special:  Tickets to Beyond Therapy, Christopher Durang’s razor-sharp comedy at the fabulous Hukilau Lanai Restaurant — rated Kapaa’s #1 restaurant by Trip Advisor.

Show dates are January 30 & 31 and February 1, 6, 7 and 8, 2015. Doors and cash bar open at 5:30 PM; dinner at 6:00 PM and the hilarity starts at 7:00 PM.

Directed by Kapa’a-resident Nadya Wynd, Beyond Therapy is a hysterical comedy about looking for love — and therapy — in all the wrong places.  Set in the early 1980s, Prudence and Bruce are seeking romance with the help of personal ads and their psychiatrists, who are even more disturbed than their patients!

Beyond Therapy offers two hours of hilarious surprises from a talented cast featuring, Nicole Cowan, Bailey Hutton, Dottie Bekeart, Stephen Pinzer, Thom Newman and Andrew Wolenter.

Tickets are $60 each, with group tables available. Reservations are required 48 hours in advance and seating is limited — so get your tickets early!

Some reviews of Beyond Therapy:

“Christopher Durang has the wit, the high, rebellious spirits, and the rage of the born satirist. He is also one of the funniest and most original playwrights at work. His Beyond Therapy could be considered his “Alice in Wonderland” with the stunning Sigourney Weaver at large in a world run by psychiatrists … this whirligig of a show…trips merrily along.”
– Edith Oliver, New Yorker

“One of the funniest plays I’ve seen in years”
– Rex Reed, New York Daily News

“The jokes

[about psychiatrists] have never stopped, but rarely have they been as funny as they are in Christopher Durang’s newest comedy, which opened on Broadway last week. Screwball and scatty, with as much owed to the Marx Brothers as to the Viennese brethren, Beyond Therapy offers the best therapy of all: guaranteed laughter. Durang’s plot, which has more bounces than a pinball game, goes from the unexpected to the unpredicted… providing two hours of hilarious surprises. John Lithgow and Dianne Wiest are both funny and touching as the star-crossed lovers.”
– Gerald Clarke, Time Magazine

“[Durang] is a serious young writer who can’t help thinking comically. Beyond Therapy…[is] zany in a particularly intelligent way…wickedly funny, terribly slanted, and essentially true.”
– Dan Sullivan, LA Times
