“Noises Off” to open January 17 at 10th Street stage

“Noises Off,” a comedy written by Michael Frayn and co-directed by Carol Ann Erford and Wes Skinner, will open at the Toledo Repertoire Theatre, 16 10th Street on Friday, January 17 at 8 p.m. Second only to “Arsenic and Old Lace” in the Toledo Rep’s audience survey of requested shows, “Noises Off” is a play-within-a play. It begins with the final dress rehearsal of the dreadful sex comedy, “Nothing On.” Botched entrances, forgotten lines, missed cues, and uncooperative props are all the sure-fire makings of an opening night flop. The second act offers a glimpse of the same show from back stage—complete with all the behind-the-scenes antics patrons never get to enjoy—while the final act is the show nearing the end of its ten-week run, long after someone should have put a fork in it. “Noises Off” runs two weekends, January 17-19 and 23-26, 2014. Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances start at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. Tickets cost $20. For more information or to purchase tickets, please call 419-243-9277.
