This evening Le Chat Noir is presenting the 2003 Off-Broadway hit Matt and Ben. The play was written by a couple of young actresses (presumably in a situation very much like Matt (Damon) and Ben (Affleck) were in before their big break) who could only be categorized as haters. But who cares? The play is vicious and funny, and sometimes we all need a little vicarious hating, to make our sad, little lives a bit more fun. Bar opens before the show starts!
In the original production the writers, Brenda Withers and Mindy Kaling, play Matt and Ben, much like the boys played the parts they wrote for themselves in Good Will Hunting. In the Le Chat Noir production women actors, Jessica Podewell and Nancy Upton, also play the leads.
Tonight and next Monday the 12th. $15. 8pm.
