If you saw the blockbuster movie The Amazing Spiderman, you may remember Michael Barra as the thuggish T-Bone; if you saw the blockbuster musical Hairspray at the Ivoryton Playhouse this summer then you certainly won’t forget his performance as the larger than life mother, Edna Turnblad. Well, Edna is back with a few friends for a night of big laughs to support the Ivoryton Village Alliance Holiday Celebration – the Ivoryton Illuminations – on Saturday, Oct. 20 at the Ivoryton Playhouse. Barra will be joined by several local comics including Billy Winn, 17-year host of WPLR morning show, and a regular at many comedy nightspots across the northeast. Cash bar – bring your own snacks! Admission is $20. For more information or tickets, contact the Ivoryton Playhouse at (860) 767-7318. The Playhouse is located at 103 Main Street in Ivoryton.
