Why are balloons terribly exciting for kids and terribly "meh" for adults? And when does the change in attitude occur? Theatre Nuevo asks the tough questions about balloon frivolity, especially as they relate to our conception of adulthood and its origins in its new group-devised piece, This Is Not Funny. Using recreations of actual newscasts and a Vaudeville-type framework, Theatre Nuevo dives deep into the mysteries of wonder, fear and our shifting sense of what's fun. The group advises that, despite the show's title, This Is Not Funny is in fact funny. Ah! The mystery begins. This Is Not Funny is performed at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday (July 23 through August 2) at the Chapel (6328 Alexander Drive; www.theatrenuevo.com). Tickets are $15 to $20.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 7 p.m. Starts: July 23. Continues through Aug. 2, 2015
