Weekend To-Do: Red Octopus Theater's 'The Dating Game!'

Posted By on Thu, Feb 2, 2012 at 8:45 AM

Red Octopus Theater presents The Dating Game! at The Public Theatre.
  • Red Octopus Theater presents "The Dating Game!" at The Public Theatre.

8 p.m. The Public Theatre. $8-$10.

While Valentine's Day and its attendant last-minute gift scrambling is still a couple of weeks away, it's never too early for some bawdy, romantic skit comedy. Red Octopus promises a "long, hard, turgid look at the primeval setting of the dating world."

And with such sketch titles as "Key Swapping? Is This a Good Idea?" and "The Gift That Keeps on Giving" (there's a free one-month supply of Valtrex for the first person to correctly guess what this skit concerns), that description sounds right on the money (shot). Also promised: riffs on "The Dating Game," "The Newlyweds" and "The Brady Bunch." That last one is just ripe with romantic comedy potential.

As with many other Red Octopus productions, this one is for grownups that possess a sense of humor, and isn't intended for the young'uns, squares, prudes or scolds.
