Six shows, half of which sold out, and 1,700 seats later, the fourth installment of I Can Ski 4 Ever has come to a close. This iteration was by far the funniest and the most sophisticated in its social commentary. Playwright/director/actor Andrew Munz casts a wide net: income inequality, the housing crisis, sexism, cultural appropriation, small town stereotypes and more find a place on the stage. Indeed, it is heavy subject matter but through a lens of incisive humor.

Also worth noting? In this production we witness a rare occurrence for Jackson theatre. Munz and actor Chad Horton appear dressed in drag. On the heels of the closing curtain, we asked Munz for some behind-the-scenes details.
