Mike Lemme's Before the Drugs Kick In, performed by NYC comedian and actress Maria DeCotis, which concluded its December run at UNDER St. Marks, has added January dates at Court Square Theater in Long Island City, Queens. In our review of this excellent show, which takes the outward form of a stand-up set, we described it as inviting "us inside the mind of one woman for a riveting, empathetic, and darkly funny exploration of mental health and its (mis)treatments and stigmas, especially where women are concerned; the oppressiveness and isolation of the suburbs; and what Betty Friedan termed the feminine mystique."

Before the Drugs Kick In runs from January 5th through 28th - see below for the complete list of performances - and Court Square Theater is located at 44-02 23rd Street, Long Island City, a 5-minute walk from the 7, M, and E trains.
