Much like last month's staged reading of the 1936 movie Reefer Madness, The Realest Real Housewives at Upright Citizens Brigade aims to seriously spoof the almost spoof-proof reality TV franchise. The cast, including Casey Wilson (Happy Endings), Melissa Rauch (The Big Bang Theory) and June Diane Raphael (web series Burning Love), as well as Danielle Schneider, Jessica St. Clair and Morgan Walsh, will represent series favorites from the Beverly Hills millionaires to the Georgia peaches to the New York socialites. The only rooster in this henhouse, Matt McConkey, will play Bravo network honcho Andy Cohen. We'd advise him to wear a sports cup, but the girls, all dressed in black, will be on their best behavior even as they read lines from the Housewives' most trash-talking, table-flipping and dress-twirling episodes. On a lighter note, the cast will sing their rendition of the single from Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kim Zolciak, “Don't Be Tardy for the Party,” which, if they're really real, will sound just as awful as the original. Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, 5919 Franklin Ave., Hlywd.; Fri., May 31, 8 p.m.; $10. (323) 908-8702, ucbtheatre.com.
Fri., May 31, 8 p.m., 2013
