Missionary in Manhattan 

When: Fri., June 7, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-15

Robert Lopez, Trey Parker and Matt Stone's envelope-pushing, Tony-winning Broadway juggernaut, The Book of Mormon, won't be entertaining Triangle audiences until next February, when the touring production makes a stop at DPAC. So what are theatergoers to do until then, if they want to see a satirical stage play that mostly revolves around Mormonism? Raleigh native and UNC-Greensboro alum Caitlin Davis returns this week to take care of that with Missionary in Manhattan, a 45-minute musical comedy starring Davis and members of the NYC theater company the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Brooklyn, which she co-founded. Davis plays one of three ukulele-plucking sister-wives, all trying to track down their brother-husbands, who may or may not have left them for a male vocal coach. After runs in New York and Philadelphia, the show is now touring the South, with the company making regionally specific tweaks at each tour stop. For the Raleigh show, the wives will be looking for their man all over the Triangle: He was last seen frequenting renowned gay nightclub Legends. Along the way, they perform song parodies such as "It's Raining More Men"—or "Mormon," if you prefer. —Craig D. Lindsey
