Valentine's Day may be past us, but there is an opportunity to continue to celebrate the holiday - particularly if you forgot about it or if you did a disappointing job of showing love and flattery and obsession to your demanding valentine. I'm just speculating. Anyway, Valentine's Day remains at the Bongo After Hours Theatre; however, that may be somewhat exaggerated. Local writer Rachel Gladstone's play The Petty Chronicles is indirectly about love; it is billed as "a new comedy about the funny side of divorce." Whether or not it is entirely about love, it is about matters of the heart. The play has been mentioned in the Nashville Scene, and the playwright herself is a part of the cast. The play is showing this weekend, on Friday and Saturday, at 7:30pm. Advance tickets are $11.50 here. The show, if you haven't figured it out yet, is playing at the theater at Bongo Java (2007 Belmont Blvd.), which is up the stairs right next to the bathroom. Yes, you heard me right - up the stairs. Bongo Java After Hours Theatre calls itself the most intimate theater in Nashville. Go ahead and support a local playwright at a local place and continue Valentine's Day.
