People like round numbers. Theyre easy to remember, they look impressive on paper, they imply significance; yes sir, nice, round numbers are pleasing. Thats why the NonProphet Theater Companys Militant Propaganda Bingo Machine
features 24 comic sketches, performed in an order determined by the audience wait, thats a terrible example of a round number. Where the hell is this going? Oh, ok here it is: 300. Thats a number so round you could slip it in a stack of flapjacks and no one would be the wiser. At 8 p.m. this evening at Off Broadway (3509 Lemp Avenue; 314-752-5075 or www.nptco.org
), the NPTCO performs episode number 300 of the Militant Propaganda Bingo Machine. Those two dozen sketches are worked over by the current cast as well as some special guest stars and former cast members, and lucky audience members receive the same cruddy prizes as always (kidding). Even if you dont win a prize, you still get to enjoy the acrobatic and effervescent sex appeal of Lola van Ella, whos performing between sketches. Tickets are $10 at the door, and you must be at least 21 to enter.
