Comic Belief

Playwright Rich Orloff's devotion to the short and funny has scored him two Herberger Lunch Time Theater productions in a row this spring, beginning with the sketch revue Funny as a Crutch, presented through Thursday, May 12, by Improbable Theatre, whose niche is getting artists with disabilities onto the page and the stage.

The show includes several short, comedic plays which prove that actors with disabilities can have a sense of humor about themselves. "It's just hilarious," says director Dolores D'Amore Goldsmith of the script for Crutch. "Sometimes it's very outward; sometimes it's very subtle."
