Eugene Ionesco’s Absurdist comedy, The Bald Soprano, pokes fun at vapid, middle-class marriages. Set in the 1950s, two couples gather for after-dinner conversation and literally talk about nothing. Ionesco accomplishes this feat through word destabilization. A sensical statement begins a tête-à-tête but is followed by complex variations that undercut the meaning of previous statements and ultimately results in banter that does not make sense. If this sounds too intellectual for a fun night out at the theatre, think again. The conversation’s twists and turns lead to hilarity, but are also unsettling in a giddy kind of way, making for a fun hour that will provide lots to discuss on the way home. Rated PG
