(Sarasota, FL) What is the key to long-lasting love? Laughter, and a lot of it! FST Improv presents Cupid’s Broken Arrow: Love Me Tinder, a special Valentine’s Day show. For all those happily hitched, the Sweethearts package includes two champagne flutes and a delectable slice of cheesecake for $50. For all those sensationally single comedy lovers, there’s the Single and Fabulous package for $20. This package includes a ticket to see this heartily humorous show, a delicious cup of ice cream, and choice of beer, house wine, or well beverage. All tickets and packages may be purchased from the FST Box Office by calling (941) 366-9000, or online at www.floridastudiotheatre.org.
FST’s Director of Improv, Will Luera, speaks to what this love-inspired show is all about. “It’s a scientific fact that laughing together is a great way for a couple to bond and get closer. This year, we are helping put love in the air with an extra special Valentine’s Day show. We’re giving our regularly scheduled show, Out of Bounds, a night off so that we can bring you a night of songs, sketches, and scenes inspired by love and all it brings – or takes away. It’s an amazing way to either start or end your Valentine’s Day. Come with a date, alone, or with a party. Either way we promise a fun night.”
To ensure an evening of unforgettable fun, here are a few tips for all audience members on this special night: One, do not let out a full-force belly laugh directly in your date’s ear. Exceptions to this rule should only be made if they have already done the same to you. This applies to anyone sitting close together, dating is not required. Two, make sure you do not have a mouthful of cheesecake when the punch lines hit throughout the evening. This may not be the most attractive sight. Three, laugh as loud as you can. Laughter is contagious and will only make for an even better time for all – plus it burns calories.
Don’t have a date? You don’t need one. Just gather all your single friends and make it an evening to remember. Join the FST Improv troupe as they celebrate this holiday of love. Cast members include: Will Luera, Christine Alexander, Larry Bukovey, Patrick A. Jackson, Joey James, Darryl Knapp, Emily Levin, Katelyn McKelley, Joey Panek, Angel Parker, Adam Ratner, Natasha Samreny, and Steve Turrisi.
Cupid’s Broken Arrow: Love Me Tinder will begin at 7:30pm in Bowne’s Lab on February 14. The Sweethearts package includes two champagne flutes and a scrumptious slice of cheesecake for $50. For only $20 the Single and Fabulous package gets you a ticket to see this heartily humorous show, a delicious cup of ice cream, and your choice of beer, house wine, or well beverage. All tickets and packages may be purchased from the FST Box Office by calling (941) 366-9000, or online at www.floridastudiotheatre.org.
About Florida Studio Theatre
Known as Sarasota’s Contemporary Theatre, Florida Studio Theatre was founded in 1973 by Jon Spelman. Starting out as a small touring company, FST traveled to places such as migrant camps and prisons. The company then acquired the former Woman’s Club building, becoming the first permanent venue. Shortly after Richard Hopkins arrived, the building was purchased and renamed The Keating Theatre. In the years that followed, Florida Studio Theatre established itself as a major force in American Theatre, presenting contemporary theatre in its five theatre venues: the Keating Theatre, the Gompertz Theatre, the Parisian style Goldstein Cabaret and John C. Court Cabaret, and Bowne’s Lab Theatre.
Even with its growth, Florida Studio Theatre remains firmly committed to making the arts accessible and affordable to a broad-based audience. FST develops theatre that speaks to our living, evolving, and dynamically changing world. As FST grows and expands, it continues to provide audiences with challenging, contemporary drama and innovative programs.
