(Repeats May 30, 31)…."The Boys Next Door" - The place is a communal residence in a New England city, where four mentally handicapped men live under the supervision of an earnest, but increasingly "burned out" social worker. Mingled with scenes from the daily lives of these four, where "little things" sometimes become momentous (and often very funny), are moments of great poignancy. We are reminded that the handicapped, like the rest of us, want only to love and laugh and find some meaning and purpose in the brief time that they, like their more fortunate brothers, are allotted on this earth. Cost: $12 - $15. For tickets call 806-792-0501 or visit CATS Playhouse. 2257 34th Street; 7:30 p.m.

Told in the styles of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Sondheim, Herry Herman, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Kander & Ebb. A witty and charming valentine to musical theatre!
