What’s the worst job you’ve ever had? Chances are, the comic team responsible for The Magnetic Theatre’s How-To series has had much, much worse—and wants to share with you the little knowledge and wisdom gleaned through all they’ve done to make a little dough in their latest creation, Money and How To Make It!, playing 12 performances only (including 2 low-priced previews) at Magnetic 375 Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 PM, February 2-25. The fourth in the series—after smash hits Sex and How To Have It!, Food and How To Eat It!, and Beer and How To Drink It!—Money and How To Make It! will explore service jobs, scam artists, corporate mumbo jumbo, and more. You’ll also get a peek at how the show is created and at the sometimes-strained working relationships among the How-To Crew—and this behind-the-scenes look will show that, while money has the power to pull people apart, comedy and song-and-dance about money can bring them back together. Bank on the million-dollar ensemble of Scott Fisher, Katie Langwell, Valerie Meiss, and Glenn Reed. Direction by Magnetic Theatre Artistic Director Steven Samuels. As always, all contribute material, along with head writer Lisa Yoffee.

Description:
The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.

Description:
It’s always a risk when we meet our heroes. Aspiring journalist Olivia Blake has landed an interview with her childhood idol, Terry Tempest, lead singer of the iconic punk band The Storm. It could be the making of her career, but she knows the reclusive punk rocker is notorious for abusing interviewers (when he doesn’t ditch the interview altogether). Olivia brings her friend and fellow Storm fanatic Stacy along for support. For Olivia and Stacy, Terry Tempest is a god—the voice of the band that helped them survive the traumas of their youth. Terry, on the other hand, is none too happy to discover the two “fangirls” in his hotel room, and even more unhappy when his manager locks them all in until he agrees to give an interview. And then there are the guns… Terry Tempest: The Final Interview is an exploration of fame, fandom, trauma, isolation, and connection. The narrative is by turns hysterically funny, satiric, and painful. The play’s dark ending reveals Tempest to be neither god nor monster, but human, with all the flaws that entails. Helmed by Magnetic veteran Rodney Smith, and featuring Magnetic regulars Cody Magouirk, Carrie Kimbrell Kimzey, and Pasquale LaCorte, TERRY TEMPEST: The Final Interview introduces playwright Jamieson Ridenhour and actor Hayley Heninger to The Magnetic stage. The Magnetic Theatre presents TERRY TEMPEST: The Final Interview, written by Jamieson Ridenhour, directed by Rodney Smith, and starring Cody Magouirk, Hayley Heninger, Carrie Kimbrell Kimzey, and Pasquale LaCorte. At Magnetic 375 (375 Depot Street in the River Arts District). Low-priced previews March 2 & 3. Opening night (with free bubbly) March 4. Continues Thursdays-Saturdays through March 25. All performances at 7:30 PM. Previews $16 online/$19 at the door. All other performances $21 online/$24 at the door. $10 student rush tickets available 15 minutes before curtain with valid I.D.
