It was in the era of TV sitcom Bosom Buddies. It covered some of the comedic ground as I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry nearly three decades earlier. William Van Zandt and Jane Milmore’s stage comedy Love, Sex and the I.R.S. is a comedy about a couple of roommates. The two guys—Jon and Leslie—decide to save some money on taxes by listing themselves as  a married couple. You can probably see where this is going—they get audited. An impending visit from an I.R.S. agent inspires the inevitable cross-dressing. Kind of reminds me of a variation on Fred Carmichael’s More Than Meets The Eye—and probably dozens of others.

The Sunset Playhouse will be staging a production of the 1980 comedy this coming April and is looking to cast the show. Brian Zielinski directs the show. Auditions take place March 14th and 15th from 7-10pm. Callbacks are scheduled for the 16th. Rehearsals run March 28th-April 27th. The show runs April 28th – May 22nd. 8 roles are available—5 men and 3 women in their 20’s-50’s. Come prepared to read selections from the script.

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
