The Munsters of the Midway Closing (Theater and Galleries) New Review (Theater and Comedy) The Short List (Theater)

When: Mondays, Fridays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 31 2011

In an apparent effort to reverse years of social ostracism, little Eddie Munster joins a youth football league. Or tries to, anyway. Lacking any knowledge of the game, the wolfboy turns to his well-meaning but clueless family for help. Antics ensue. Paul Barile's script is a loyal send-up of The Munsters TV series, keeping both the corny puns and implausibilities intact. Higher production values--costumes for the whole cast, for instance--would elevate this 45-minute effort from extended skit to kitschy tribute. --Dan Jakes

Price: $5-$10
