Once a year, Weathervane Playhouse plays host to a special-event, one-night-only benefit performance. This year, our "usual suspects" of Cleveland-area theater artists have chosen a hilarious send-up of a Judge Judy-like reality-TV star: Judge Jackie: Disorder in the Court.
ALL PROCEEDS WILL BENEFIT CANAPI
Community AIDS Network/Akron Pride Initiative
Judge Jackie Justice rules over her reality-television courtroom with an iron fist, presiding over a three-ring circus of America's most chaotic civil cases. But, when a drop in ratings brings her face to face with the liability of her own love life, the judge must learn to navigate the ludicrous laws of love in this over-the-top courtroom comedy! Mischievous mayhem! Deluded defendants! Musical-comedy justice will be served!
The performance will be a staged concert production; it will be performed in costume with some props, but will not feature sets, lighting effects, etc. The show is performed in two acts with an intermission.
Judge Jackie: Disorder in the Court is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
AUDIENCE ADVISORY: Judge Jackie: Disorder in the Court is recommended for mature audiences. The show is filled with adult humor and sexual situations. Parents are requested to use their discretion in determining if this production may be suitable for their children.
