Encore Michigan

Monster Box opens the Sedaris comedy, ‘The Book of Liz’ 11/30-12/16

Show Announcement November 16, 2018

WATERFORD, Mich.–Monster Box Theatre here continues its Fall/Winter season with the “cheeseball comedy,” The Book of Liz; written by comedic legends, David and Amy Sedaris, AKA “The Talent Family.” The Book of Liz will run weekends Nov 30th – Dec 16th.

Co-directed/produced by Monster Box Theatre’s Artistic Director, Paul Stark, and Managing Director, Tahra Gribbin, The Book of Liz features Monster Box veteran actors and introduces a handful of fresh faces to the professional Waterford stage. Angela Dill stars as Liz, a runaway from a community of “Squeamish” (Mike Olsem, Betty DeWulf, Daniel DeRey) who live in a parish and keep to themselves … and God.

Feeling under appreciated, Liz resolves to leave her community and journeys to a new life. Along the way she meets a smattering of outlandish characters, who all aid her in discovering what she feels is missing in her life. She comes in contact with a Ukranian “Mr. Peanut” (Allison Megroet) and her husband (Chris Peterson) and bonds with a recovering alcoholic chain restaurant manager (Jeremiah Pauling) and his staff (Nik Khator, Malina Lyons).

This show is perfect for fans of the Sedaris’ sparkling brand of humor and anyone looking for a hilarious comedy with just the right amount of heartfelt self discovery. Don’t miss this uproarious production which opens November 30th, just in time for family get togethers.

‘The Book of Liz’ opens at Monster Box Theatre November 30th and runs through December 16th with performances Fridays/Saturdays (7:30 pm), Sundays (2 pm), and an industry night performance Thu, Dec. 6th (7:30 pm).
