Don’t Think Twice at Tampa Theatre (Monday through Wednesday)
Directed, written by and starring Mike Birbiglia (Sleepwalk With Me), Don’t Think Twice is a dark, bittersweet comedy about what turns people into comedians, and about what happens when you choose success for yourself over continued struggle alongside your friends. Featuring many of right-now’s hottest comedians (Keegan-Michael Key of Key & Peele, Gillian Jacobs from Community, Kate Micucci of Garfunkel & Oates), it’s incisive but never somber as it navigates the fraught middle-distance between the idealism of youth and the dread of not fulfilling that idealism as your youth begins to end. Screenings at 7:30pm Monday through Wednesday. Click HERE for tickets. Tampa Theatre 711 North Franklin Street.
