5 PERFORMANCES LEFT! “THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB IS LAUGH-OUT-LOUD FUNNY!” So says the review! At the Powerhouse Theater in Waveny Park, New Canaan, CT now through August 10. It’s about five women, college swim teammates, who gather each August at an Outer Banks beach house to catch up, share memories, and deal with life’s vicissitudes together. We see them over 33 years, from their 40s into their seventies, dealing with screwdrivers (libation) in the morning, men, marriage, children, divorce, becoming a grandparent, The New York Times’ view of Southerners and comfort food, broken bones, wrinkles, divorce, dementia, and even the death of one member. There’s humor and some poignancy as these friends relate, compete, complain, hug and care for each other. We laughed and laughed. The essence of humor is truth — we could see ourselves. We loved it. There is a matinee on August 4, otherwise 8 pm on Friday and Saturday through August 10.
