Leon Tolchinsky is ecstatic: he’s landed a terrific teaching job in an idyllic village. He arrives to find people sweeping dust from the stoops back into their houses and milking cows upside down. The town has been cursed with chronic stupidity and anyone who stays longer than 24 hours becomes cursed as well. To further complicate matters, Leon has fallen in love with a girl so dumb that she just learned how to sit down! Can he break the curse in time?

By Neil Simon.

Directed by guest artist Liz Golson

Liz received her BFA in Music Theatre from The Hartt School in 2007 and has enjoyed acting professionally all over the country since then. She could mention the few random barn theatres that took a liking to her for a few summers, or the fact that she’s spent a strangely large amount of time performing in gambling towns like Atlantic City and Cripple Creek, CO. Or, if you catch her in the right mood, she may tell you about the most embarrassing show she ever did—Fandance: The Legend of Sally Rand—but that would that would take too much room to print here. So let’s say this, after strange and wonderful acting career, Liz began to direct and choreograph, most recently choreographing Cabaret at LCT last spring. She and her husband, Grant, got incredibly lucky to receive the offer to move to La Crosse to become Producing Artistic Director and First Lady of LCT (they’re still trying to figure out her title and why she would want one in the first place). Life in La Crosse has been marvelous this past year, and Liz would like to thank all those who have made them feel so welcome. She figures—at this point—you must like them because now you’re letting her direct! Love to Grant, Bonnie (her three-year-old), and the new little Golson due in January. Heaven help us all.
