Steve Martin adaptation opens Phoenix’s 11th season

Sep 21, 2018

Imagine getting caught in public when your bloomers suddenly fall down around your ankles for all to see. That's the premise of Steve Martin’s adaptation of “The Underpants,” the Carl Sternheim's German play set in 1910.

“The Underpants” is the kick- off production of the Phoenix Theatre’s 11th season.

Directed by Eric Lewis, the comedy’s creative team includes Jim Thompson (scenic design), Elizabeth Shipman (costume design) and Linda Curry (lighting design).

“The Underpants” centers around the household of Theo (Asa Sholdez) an uptight government worker and his pretty wife Louise (Debra Rich). When Louise accidentally exposes her underwear in public while waving to the King, she attracts hopeful suitors (James Lynch and Curt Simmons).

Each is vying for her attention and the spare room that Theo is renting out to supplement his income.

Shows are Sept. 21-Oct. 14 at the Phoenix Theatre, 9674 Firdale Ave., Edmonds.
Tickets are $22-$24. For tickets or information:, 206-533-2000
