Suspenders—it’s Like a Dysfunctional Family on Viagra!

This weekend in Longmont, CO, theater enthusiasts lucky enough to hold tickets enjoyed the sold-out, debut performance of Suspenders. This enchanting musical comedy, set in a modern-day nursing home, will remind you of every crotchety, scatty, or zany relative you love. The authentic ensemble of fourteen cantankerous inhabitants, two overworked nurses, one light-fingered teenager, a virtuous new-comer, and a dog sets the stage for this dysfunctional ‘family’ to offer the audience a room full of continuous laughter. Every scene, from the battle of the Bridge and the Mah-Jong players, to the melody, “Where Did I Put My?” will have you swept up in the laughter of, “oh yeah, I know someone like that!” If you enjoyed Mid-life Crisis earlier this year at Boulder’s Dinner Theater, you’ll love Suspenders. This delightful musical comedy by Nina Davis and Debi Stevenson opened at Longmont Theater,513 Main Street in Longmont, Colorado.
