Royal-don't dressEscape the economic blues and wintery chills with a hot night of sizzling comedy! This Midwest premiere has been greeted with rave reviews, and now is your chance to see why the critics are smiling. Don’t Dress for Dinner is a frenetic case of mistaken identity with more twists than a corkscrew, as Bernard’s plans for a cozy weekend with his mistress go awry when his wife, Jacqueline, decides to stay home with plans of her own. During intermission, Theater Thursday guests will receive a complimentary glass of champagne, light hor d’oeuvres and a special gift.
