Raggedy And The Short List (Theater) Image Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through April 10 2016

David Valdes Greenwood's new comedy of political manners, directed by Cecilie Keenan, is refreshingly modern territory for Pride Films & Plays even if at its heart it's still a closet story. An acclaimed, reclusive poet is offered time at the first female president's upcoming inauguration, to the joy of her newly outed son and chagrin of her skeptical wife. When a cartoonishly cynical campaign operative (winning Iowa, we're unironically told, comes down to dress color) tries to exploit her trans status, the family band together to face the public on their own terms. The stakes don't get much higher than a press release, but Delia Kropp is warm as a mother navigating truly uncharted family territory. —Dan Jakes

Price: $22-$27
