Car Talk

Some folks take a midday recharge with snacks, an extra cup of coffee, or (shudder) one of those kinda terrifying energy drink power shots. But Herberger Theater's lunch time shows offer an alternative to the average pick-me-up that'll fit right into your lunch hour. (You can even bring your sandwich along and munch through the production.)

Theatre Artist Studio's Shifting Gears is a one-act comedy showing at lunchtime during the first half of November. Stranded, straitlaced businessman Fred finds himself stranded with a hippie dippy pal after a fender bender.
