Pot Mom, redux

potmom.jpgNot sure if there are any tickets available for tonight, but a new production of Justin Tanner‘s beloved Pot Mom is opening and if I were you (or me, even) I’d make my reservations now.

Original cast members Laurie Metcalf, Ellen Ratner and Jon Palmer return, and there are a bunch of excellent actors who are members of the new Third Stage company formed last year. It’s at their tiny but also excellent theater in Burbank, a fantastic venue for Tanner’s work which also puts the entire audience in super-excellent proximity to that force of nature known as Laurie Metcalf on stage. (Seriously. I’ve acted with crazies and heavyweights, and she’s the only one who ever really scared me‚Äîin a good way, of course!)
