THEATER: "Pomme is French For Apple"


The First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival is behind us, but you can enjoy the "fruits" of the Toronto Fringe Festival this week when the critically acclaimed "Pomme is French for Apple," which won Best of the Fringe and Patron's Pick at the 2012 Toronto festival, hits Downstairs Cabaret Theatre this week. Written by and starring Liza Paul and Bahia Watson, the play is a humorous West Indian look at the complexities of womanhood, and has been likened to "The Vagina Monologues," if they were told from the point of view of the ladyparts – "pomme" is also Caribbean slang for female genitalia.

The show opens at the 20 Windsor Street location of Downstairs Cabaret on Thursday, October 11, and will continue through October 20 on the following days: Thursdays at 8 p.m., and Fridays-Saturdays at 9 p.m. Tickets are $25, with discounts available for seniors, students, and groups.
