The Cobra and the Hare
Surrealistic performance troupe Pink Toupee Collective may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’re looking for theater of the absurd on acid, this colorful band of crazy, kooky actors and musicians is just the cup for you. You have to approach a Pink Toupee performance with an open mind and a sense of whimsy, with no expectations of a coherent story line or much logic whatsoever. What you get in return is an evening of the unexpected—more than 25 original, creative songs backed by a tight, burlesquey band, very imaginative costumes and makeup and a group of eccentric, enthusiastic performers who are having a grand old time.
Ooley Theatre, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; $15-$17. 2007 28th Street, (916) 739-6105, www.pinktoupee.org. Through April 26.
