A&E BRIEFS The Underpants will open on June 28 in Florida Studio Theatre's Keating Theatre. Image courtesy Florida Studio Theatre. THE UNDERPANTS OPENS JUNE 28 AT FST Florida Studio Theatre will present the comedy The Underpants, by Carl Sternheim with an adaptation by Steve Martin, beginning Friday, June 28, at 8 p.m. in the Keating Theatre. The Underpants "combines Martin's wacky sense of humor" with intelligent insight into human nature, a news release says. FST's Artistic Director Richard Hopkins adds in the release, "Steve Martin has taken a German Expressionistic comedy from the first half of the 20th century and adapted it into a delightful, insightful, fully relevant, always humorous, offbeat comedy that speaks to the contemporary American consciousness. And yes, it's funny," the release adds. FST's production features returning company members Gil Brady and Daryl Embry. Brady last appeared in FST's Cabaret production of Reel Music; Embry returns after last appearing in Perfect Wedding, the release notes. Making their FST debut will be company members Jennifer Joan Thompson, Mary Ann Conk, Danny Bernardy and Chet Carlin. Conk, although a newcomer to FST, has performed in The Underpants once before — at Geva Theatre in Rochester, NY, the release continues. Tickets for The Underpants will be on sale through July 28; they may be purchased by phone at 366-9000, online at, or by visiting the box office at 1241 N. Palm Ave. in downtown Sarasota.
