Did you read The Giving Tree? If you’re an adult who loved Shel Silverstein’s work as a child, you have the opportunity to see his work in a new light at “An Adult Evening of Shel Silverstein.” This show is a hilarious and twisted look at the famous children’s author’s uncensored side. In nine shorts, ten actors display the poet’s commentary on today’s world. From the economy to social dysfunctions, it is “a world where nothing is as it seems and where the most innocent conversation can turn menacing in an instant.” Anyone who lives Silverstein’s original wit will love the twists and turns of this adult-themed show. You’ll be intrigued and entertained all night! The show runs Fridays in February at 8pm at the McCadden Place Theatre. Tickets are $20. For more information and to buy tickets, click here.
