Just a little over a year after Manhattan Theatre Club debuted the play, Sacramento's B Street Theatre has staged David Lindsay-Abaire's comedy Fuddy Meers. And, as with the MTC mounting, the B Street effort has proved a success. The production, directed by Buck Busfield, extended one week until March 4 and is nearly sold out for its remaining performances. The show began Jan. 13 and was to run only until Feb. 25.

Just a little over a year after Manhattan Theatre Club debuted the play, Sacramento's B Street Theatre has staged David Lindsay-Abaire's comedy Fuddy Meers.

In Fuddy Meers, Claire, a wife and mother, wakes up every morning to discover she has forgotten everything she knows, leaving her husband to fill her in details of her identity and situation. A heroine with such a vulnerable Achilles heel can only fall into comic trouble, and Claire does when she's unwittingly kidnapped by a disfigured, limping man, a henchman who talks through a hand puppet, and a female cop.

After bowing at MTC in October 1999, Fuddy Meers transferred to a brief commercial run at the Minetta Lane Theatre.

Tickets are $15.50. The B Street is located at 2711 B Street. For more information, call (916) 443-5300.

Next up at B Street, Beneath the Moon, Beyond the Stars, by Buck Busfield, opens March 11. —By Robert Simonson
