Get Shorty

Be sure to add “Watch seven plays” to your summer to-do list, right after “Finish reading A Game of Thrones” and “Go parasailing.” Impossible, you say? Not when City Theatre’s 16th annual Summer Shorts hits the Arsht Center’s Carnival Studio Theater this Thursday and runs through June 26. This year, the collection of five- to 20-minute plays includes Chronicle Simpkins Will Cut Your Ass, a play about a gang war on the playground; Aboard the Guy V. Molinari, where two ship passengers thrown overboard unexpectedly find their port in a storm; and Mickey Herman Saves the *%#@^* Universe, in which a gamer wagers the fate of Earth against alien invaders. City Theatre enlisted Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy star Jai Rodriguez as this year’s host and headliner.
June 2-5, 7 p.m.; June 9-12; June 16-19; June 23-26, 2011
