Babette, Frank and Theo are three neighbors who are on the verge of life changing episodes in their individual lives. Babette is a writer trying to get her first book deal, Frank is trying to launch an auctioneering career and Theo is in the throes of trying to finish the composition of his roller coaster theme song. They all feel that they are on the verge of having “their dreams come true” or maybe not.

This is the premise of Melissa James Gibson's quirky story, “[sic]” that will be performed by Theater Ninjas February 27 – March 15, 2014 at 78th Street Studios (located at 1300 West 78th St., Second Floor, Cleveland, OH 44102).

The title “[sic]” comes from the Latin word meaning “thus” and is an annotation for quoting source material “as is” or as some say “spelling is correct” or in other words, “just leave well enough alone”. Gibson’s play has “rhythmic stutters, musical trills and percussive stomps” in the form of conversational language that gives the work a madcap character as the three chums speak a language all their own and invent personal party games that only their clique can understand.

It is a play and a play on words about friendship and giving your all without expectations of returns and that no matter how black life seems to be for you, your friends will always be there to tap you for $10.

Theater Ninjas is a Cleveland-based company that produces adventurous, intimate and surprising live events using an ensemble-driven process, multiple disciplines and the power of the human body to tell a story.

General Admission: $20
Thursdays & Mondays: $10
Under 25/Over 75: $15
