"The Zippers of Zoomerville"

May 25, 2011

Through May 28

Phoenix Theatre

There’s a lot of Gilbert and Sullivan, a hint of Elvis-movie plotting, and a lot of Indy 500 lore packed into this breezy “mini-mockeretta” that’s a must-see for anyone with fondness for racing and/or a love of musical theater. Yes, I previewed it here a few weeks ago—and I don’t usually write about shows here mid-run—but I thought I’d give the delightful show another bump and encourage you to make time this weekend to go along for this silly ride. Rare is the musical with this many laughs. Rare is the home-grown show that’s this confident and accomplished. Rare is the opportunity for Indy audiences to laugh at themselves in such a smart show. Go. Details here.
