Very Brisk Ticket Sales for '5 Women'

Posted: Monday, February 13, 2017, 9:25am

The Curtain Players production of the Alan Ball comedy Five Women Wearing the Same Dress opened to full houses February 10 and 11 at the Harlem Road playhouse. Advance ticket sales for the show have been strong for this engagement, and patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets early. The box office anticipates sellouts.

As of midday Monday February 13, 14 seats remained for the Friday February 17 show, 11 for the Saturday February 18 performance, and seven for the Sunday February 19 matinee.

The best availability for tickets is for the February 24-26 performance weekend.

Patrons are reminded Smothers Road is closed east from Sunbury Road for a major construction project on the causeway over Hoover Reservoir. Click here for alternate routes and allow more time for travel to the playhouse.

Tickets for Five Women are available on this website. Click here. Performances are 8 PM Fridays and Saturdays February 10-11, 17-18 and 24-25; and 2 PM Sundays February 19 and 26.

Five Women, written by Alan Ball, takes place during an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee, estate, where five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids are hiding out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the women's spirit.

NOTE: Five Women is recommended for mature audiences because of the script’s strong language, adult humor and situations.
