1. Broadway Palm Theatre – Run for Your Wife
A cab driver, John Smith, literally has two lives, complete with two different wives, Mary and Barbara. Somehow, he manages to juggle them both without arousing suspicion. However, he gets caught up in a mugging, and he wakes up in a hospital. He ends up with Mary instead of with Barbara, with whom he should be at the moment, and he now has to deal with explaining this problem to both of his wives and the police all at once.

5. Arizona Broadway theatre – Singin’ in the Rain
Based on one of the most celebrated and beloved films of all time starring the inimitable Gene Kelly, Singin’ in the Rain is set in 1920’s Hollywood during the waning days of the silent film era. This zany, light hearted romantic comedy focuses on romantic lead Don Lockwood, his sidekick Cosmo Brown, aspiring actress, Kathy Selden, and Lockwood’s leading lady Lina Lamont, whose less-than-appealing vocal tones make her an unlikely candidate for stardom in talking pictures. You’ll want to kick your feet up as you’re transported to yesteryear in this dazzling production. For tickets, visit AZBroadwayTheatre.com.
