'The Underpants' goes above and beyond for laughs

This is his second go-round as Theo in "The Underpants."

"I last did it five plays, or about two years, ago," Zischke said. "I like that Theo is unassailable in his own convictions, whether they're right or wrong. A lot of the jokes are at his expense."

Zischke said the play is fine for people 11 years old and up.

"It leaves most everything to the imagination," he said.

"The Underpants" opens on Wednesday, Nov. 8, and will run until Saturday, Dec. 2. On Tuesday, Nov. 14, Cap Rep will host a socials night with complimentary hors d'oeuvres from downtown Albany restaurants, and pre-show entertainment at 6:30 p.m. On Wednesday, Nov. 15 and 22, there will be a post-show discussion after the 7:30 p.m. shows. On Thursday, Nov. 16, the Skyline restaurant across the street from the theater will host Thursday Night OUT, an event for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community, for an extra $25 to be paid with ticket purchase.
