When that guy landed on the moon for the first time, the entire nation was entranced, and millions of folks looked on in awe as a voice muttered some unforgettable phrase about small steps, giant leaps, and mankind. Nowadays the stories of space travel tend to center on psycho, diaper-wearing astronauts. Neil Armstrong must be proud. And if he isnt, then we hope he has a sense of humor, because comedy troupe Laughing Gas< is paying homage to mans greatest achievement the only way it knows how, by making fun of it with the production One Giant Laugh for Mankind.
But the goofs at Laughing Gas arent blaming anyone for our lack of a Jetsons-like lifestyle. I guess the moon is kinda like New Jersey. Once youve gone there, its no reason to go back, says troupe member Todd Rice. The fun goes down at the Main Street Playhouse at 11:00 p.m. Tickets cost $10, but anyone moonwalking at the door gets in two-for-one. All ages are welcome, and theres never a drink minimum.
