Assisted Living: The Musical®

From early retirement right up to the pulling of the plug, 21st century seniors are partying like it’s 1969! Imagine: no work, no pregnancy, and a full array of Medicare-subsidized pharmaceuticals. They are partying at Pelican Roost, the full-service retirement community that is home to the 18 different characters played by the show’s two actors in this 75-minute, hilarious, vaudeville-esque musical revue. Each of the colorful characters is living his or her life in the moment and to the max. 

Created by Rick Compton and Betsy Bennett—who also star in the production—Assisted Living: The Musical® begins as the show’s host couple enters heaven, suspecting their son pulled the plug to get his hands on Dad’s vintage Corvette. They don’t seem to mind. Instead, the couple fondly remembers Pelican Roost, where the various characters sing and dance, revel and kvetch, celebrate and bloviate their way through later life.

Lisa Lampanelli’s Losin’ It!

In a departure from the insult comedy she was once known for, LISA LAMPANELLI’S LOSIN’ IT is a heartfelt, funny theatrical evening focusing on issues of weight, body image, and “losin’ it!” Lisa has lost and gained more than 372 pounds over the course of her life. Lisa and friends charm theatergoers with hilarious anecdotes about their own struggles, spiked with Lisa’s cutting-edge humor.
