    “The Fireside Chats with FDR” at The Comedy Playhouse

    In 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously took to the airwaves to broadcast a series of conversational speeches designed to ease Americans’ fears over the banking crisis and pitch his “New Deal” to the electorate. They became known as “Fireside Chats with FDR,” and James Mitchell Gooden has created a show based on the broadcasts. Part humor and part history, it’s a show perfectly tailored for a pre-Fourth of July night out. The Comedy Playhouse is located at 3620 N. 1st Ave. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased at the door, or by calling (520) 260-6442. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

    Dog Days of Summer
