New Sketch Comedy Revue Roasts Today's Culture and Current Events at FST

Arts & Culture

Florida Studio Theatre (FST) presents Laughing Matters (Variant 6): Paranoia on Parade, a new edition of the theatre's hit musical sketch comedy revue inspired by today's culture and politics. Featuring parodies of popular songs and musical theatre classics interspersed with original comedic sketches, Laughing Matters pokes fun at everything—from the impact of social media and the steep rise of inflation to Sarasota's rapid development and the seemingly endless COVID-19 pandemic. Created by a team of writers from across the country led by Head Writer Rebecca Hopkins with Musical Arrangements by Jim Prosser, Laughing Matters (Variant 6) begins playing February 9 in FST's Court Cabaret.  FST's production of Laughing Matters (Variant 6) is supported, in part, by Sarasota County Tourist Development Tax Revenues; by the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council of Arts and Culture and the State of Florida; and The Exchange.
