Funerals can be such funny affairs.
Leslie J. Miller is having lots of fun these days.
Veteran Tucson actors Martie van der Voort, left, and Lisa Mae Roether in Beowulf Alley Theatre's production of "Parallel Lives," which pokes fun at just about everything.
Back in the olden days - the late 1980s - actor-comedians Kathy Najimy and Mo Gaffney developed an almost cult following when the two wrote and acted in "The Kathy and Mo Show: Parallel Lives."
The three one-acts in "(Dude) True Story: Three Tall Tales" have separate themes, ranging from the search for a guest professor to a gathering of self-help enthusiasts.
The three stories in "(Dude) True Story" draw partly on the experiences of Tucson actor-playwright Jim Ambrosek, aka Jimmy Dees. Above, the Beowulf cast.
Jim Ambrosek is about to hit the big time.
China Young and Patrick Baum in Beowulf Alley Theatre Company's production of "Almost, Maine," about love in a rural, made-up town in that state.
Candace Bean and Jacob Brown in one of the nine vignettes that make up the play.
Beowulf Alley Theatre Company has been all over the globe this season.
Rachel Santay plays Marie in Beowulf Alley Theatre's production of "Marie Antoinette, The Color of Flesh."
Hilary Metzger is Elizabeth in Beowulf's "Marie Antoinette."
Marie Antoinette's life wasn't an easy one. The queen of France was pretty much hated by the French people, had a meddling mother, was often blamed for the French Revolution, and met up with the guillotine in 1793.
Don't believe a word they say.
For six years, Beth Dell was consumed by Beowulf Alley Theatre.
