Gallery | 'Take Me Out' at Rising Action Theatre through Oct. 4

Take Me Out, the Tony-winning Broadway hit about a professional baseball player named Darren Lemming who suddenly announces he's gay, runs through Oct. 4 at Rising Action Theatre, 840 E. Oakland Park Blvd..

The Richard Greenberg play is well-acted by co-stars Laris Macario, Larry Buzzeo, Terry Cuzzort and Ted Dvoracek.

The show features the cast in several extended nude locker room/shower scenes, which may or may not have contributed to it being sold-out when I saw it Saturday night. Buy tickets in advance or risk being shut out.

Performances are Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m.; Sundays at 7 p.m. Reserved-seat tickets are $35; a dinner package at nearby Primavera restaurant is $60 including the show. Visit the theater's website or call 800-595-4849 to buy tickets.
