If you have a moment this Spring, it's time for a bit of comedy from Theatre In the Raw. As part of its 25th season of production, Vancouver's Theatre In the Raw is presenting the uproarious play ENTER LAUGHING by Joseph Stein - adapted from Carl Reiner's novel. The show runs for 10 performances at Studio 16 (1551 West 7th Ave) between May 8th and May 19th.

In the mid-1930s in NYC, David Kolowitz is on track to fulfill all of his parent's hopes and dreams by becoming a druggist. David Kolowitz however, has ideas of his own. David Kolowitz wants to be an actor! Loosely based on Carl Reiner's autobiography, ENTER LAUGHING focuses on the first awkward moves a young man makes towards adulthood, women, and the limelight. Come witness the steps and missteps of a young man with a wandering eye who doesn't know a stage cue from a cue stick, yet wants to be a star.

This ensemble cast features Adam Olgui, Jacques Lalonde*, R. David Stephens*, Elliot Wesley, Janis Harper, Giuseppe Bevilacqua, Jennie McCahill, Noella Ansaldi, Ralston Harris, Lisa Robertson, Stanley Fraser, and Gavi Beigel under the direction of Theatre In the Raw's artistic director Jay Hamburger.

Come celebrate a quarter century of theatre production by Theatre In the Raw with Enter Laughing by Joseph Stein - May 8th to 19th at Studio 16.
