    McManus in Love - poster

    Get in the spirit of spring this winter with a performance of McManus in Love, a one-man comedy written by nationally renowned humor writer and Eastern Washington University Professor Emeritus Patrick F. McManus, and starring his indentured actor, Tim Behrens. 

    "Love" follows the hilarious antics of the young Pat and his pal Crazy Eddie Muldoon, as they discover their fear of the dark is child's play compared to their fear of GIRLS!

    But something keeps them wondering about love, romance, marriage and what is this thing called dating anyway?  Over the course of the evening, they discover why your first date warps your personality forever!

    Pick up personal grooming tips from the old woodsman, Rancid Crabtree, who takes a bath once every leap year - because he has this theory that a mixture of soap and water will eat holes in your protective crust. Learn dating moves from Cousin Buck, who grew up to be only slightly smarter than celery. Then follow Pat into the movie theatre on that first date with none other than Melba Peachbottom, the prettiest girl in the county.

    Actor Tim Behrens portrays the one-man cast of 15 characters, including a bat, a bear, a bicycle, and an even stranger assortment of humans. "Love" is one in a repertoire of five McManus Comedies that have toured 23 states and Canada, in 1,100 performances to more than 450,000 people.
