The 2010 - 2011 Season: Perception/Projection

Star Bar is deeply saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Judy Girard, one of our oldest and dearest friends; she might very well have taken your ticket and shown you to your seat. She and her husband of 17 years, John Megow, met during a Star Bar show and were just as in love now as they ever were; their devotion and delight in each other were a joy to behold.  Judy died of heart failure on February 1 after rescuing her granddaughter and family pets from a carbon monoxide leak in her home. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to either of two causes important to her, AIDS research and Belgian Tervuren dog rescue.  The rest of Star Bar's 2010 - 2011 season is dedicated to her memory. You can find her full obituary online at the Gazette.

Waiting for Godot
Samuel Beckett

November 5 - 20, 2010

November: Pass the time with Didi and Gogo in the original show about nothing; they cover everything from footwear to flatulence in this uproarious, dolorous reflection on the ridiculous dignity of the human condition, the elusive nature of meaning and the oft-excruciating ennui of existence. Beckett’s quintessential work exquisitely articulates the desolate hilarity of the quest for relevance in a cryptic universe. Will Godot ever come – and even if he does, will it matter?

Coming in February, 2011: Bug, by Tracy Letts

February 18 - March 12: Spiral downward into madness with your sweetie this Valentine's Season in Tracy Letts' relentless, disturbing thriller about co-dependence, drug use and psychotic contagion.

May 2011: Why Torture is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them: a new comedy by Christopher Durang

June 3, 4, 5; 10, 11, 12; 17, 18 19, 2011:  Christopher Durang's outrageous, irreverent take on patriotism and paranoia in the post-9/11 world. Felicity awakens one morning with a terrible hangover - and married to a complete stranger: Zamir, whose volatile temper, mysterious activities and indeterminate ethnicity push the Threat Level up to Orange for her and her parents. The insanity escalates with a couple of shadow-government operatives, a sinister butterfly collection and an amateur spy who keeps losing her undies. From Freedom Fries to waterboarding, nothing is sacred in this acerbic, absurd and affectionate insight into an America under attack.
