Misconceptions is a new musical in production at Footlights theater in Falmouth. The subject matter is a little dark; infertility. For any couple trying to have children and running into difficulty, there's nothing funny about it.
Allen Baldwin decided to make it funny. He wrote a musical using concepts that might be commonplace amongst those struggling to conceive. White sticks & plastic cups are not normally the punch lines to many jokes but in this particular number, they are.
Misconceptions edges along the lines of difficulty injecting humor where it's more often just too dark. And it's a musical, who doesn't come out of a musical just feeling a little better about themselves.
Misconceptions is in production at Footlights Theatre in Falmouth through November 18. For more information & to purchase tickets you can go to their website.
