"Theatrum Elysium kicked off it's 2013 season by baring it all in their production of the Steve Martin adapted play, The Underpants. Set in the Mad Men era, madness ran rampant for excitable young housewife Louise and her invariably precise husband, Theo. When Louise's underpants fall to her ankles at the King's Parade, their modest apartment becomes a revolving door of raunchy, romantic and ridiculous suitors who would do just about anything to be near the accidentally infamous Louise. Through the machinations of outrageous physical comedy, larger-than-life characters and shameless innuendo, director Aaron Ganz (Cymbeline) whisked us through the heartfelt and hilarious story of one young woman's empowerment. A celebratory introduction to Theatrum Elysium's new season, The Underpants showed us just enough to make us giggle, blush, and laugh so hard... you may have just fallen out of your seat."
