Instead, New York playwright Mashuq Mushtaq Deen’s absurd tragicomedy will make its world premiere nearly three years later at the KC Rep.’s Copaken Stage.

It will open at 19:00 on January 31st and will run until February 19th. Tickets ($35-$75) are available at kcrep.org.

Eddie B., a former teacher known for his humor towards teachers, will bring his comedy to the Midland on January 28th.
