The Vex’s Eleventh Season Opens This Fall

The Sheldon Vexler Theatre at the Jewish Community Center opens its eleventh season this fall. As mentioned in a previous post (see May 7), the Vex is our favorite community theatre, consistently producing top-notch shows with excellent performances and technical details.
Their 2009-2010 season includes:

  • Run for Your Wife: A hysterical British farce involving the chaos that surrounds the life of a man trying to balance having more than one, well, wife.
  • Orphans: An emotionally-charged drama about a domineering older brother, a troubled younger one, and a mysterious stranger who disrupts their lives.
  • Jake’s Women: Neil Simon’s play about writer Jake, his struggling marriage, and the real and imaginary women he talks with to resolve his issues.
  • Rent: A 1996 Tony winner for Best Musical, this New York-based drama explores themes of urban living, homelessness, AIDS, and how friendships develop through adversity.

The SA Express-News ran an excellent article about their new season a few days ago….check it out.

Season tickets, called “VexFlex” passes, are reasonably priced ($54 for seniors, military and members; $62 for non-members) and, as their name implies, allows you some flexibility. Each pass includes four shows. You can use one-per-show, or take three friends to one show….completely up to you. Season tickets are now on sale; call the box office at 210-302-6835. Individual tickets are $18, $16 for senior/military/JCC members, and $12 for students.
