Last weekend my wife and I attended a performance of Brat Productions' "Carrie" - a dark comic take on the novel by Stephen King. It was, to use Brat's own words, "bloody funny". Really great stuff, actually - wonderful dialogue, great special effects, and very nice sets & transitions.
Some nice attention to detail too - Carrie's gravemarker sits at the entrance to the performance space, there was a setup for getting your own prom picture taken before the show, and the play's program was designed to look like a 1979 yearbook.
If you're in Philadelphia, try to check out a performance. The show runs through November 7. And if you go this week (tonight through Sunday), use the code "PROM5" online, or the phrase "there's no place like prom" in person, and you'll get $5 off tickets.
