You'd Better Sit Down: Tales from my Parents' Divorce
Saturdays, Sundays, 3 p.m. and Tuesdays-Saturdays, 7 p.m. Continues through May 6 2012; $35
Theater: Off Broadway
Four members of The Civilians sat their parents down and asked them for the real story behind their divorces. Each actor assumes the role of their own mother or father (or in one case, both) in a show crafted entirely from those verbatim interviews. YOU BETTER SIT DOWN: TALES FROM MY PARENTS’ DIVORCE is shockingly candid, unexpectedly hilarious, and proves that what we want to know about our parents’ lives and what we actually should know are two totally different things.
