Tales of a One-Armed Woman

What is it? Sketch comedy that centers around the life of Mary Theresa Archbold in what's touted as "joyfully wacky" and "heartbreaking." The two-person show also stars Pat Shay and was directed by Best Week Ever contributor Kevin Allison. Archbold won Outstanding Actor in the New York International Fringe Festival.

Why see it? Jazz hands with one hand is called waving. Jazz hands with one hand clutching a fake hand is called hilarious.

Who should go? Anyone who has wanted to laugh at missing appendages, but sought more than "Actors Shake Hands. Hand Comes Off. Shock. Laughter. Lights Up."
