“The Good Doctor,” directed by the wonderful Scotty White! This BROADWAY hit is an entertaining composite of Neil Simon and Anton Chekhov. In one sketch, a feisty old woman storms a bank to attack the manager. In another, a father takes his son to a bordello to learn about sex only to change his mind, which really confuses the boy. One man offers to drown himself for three rubles. And these are just a sampling of the vignettes in this show! The stories are droll, the portraits affectionate, and the humor infectious! July 24-27, 30, 31, August 1-3. Wednesday-Saturday 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Theatre 98 (350 Morphy Ave, Fairhope). Please visit www.theatre98.org for more information.
