"Escape from Baldwin Park," the comedy that debuted at this year's Orlando Fringe Festival, will have two additional performances: June 1 and 8.
Steve Schneider wrote "Escape from Baldwin Park," directed by Jay Hopkins, and it's full of local references and gags. The story takes place in an indeterminate future when Orlando's Baldwin Park neighborhood is walled off and left for dead — except there are people inside who are very much alive. Orlando City Commissioner Patty Sheehan plays a big part in the silly plot, which spoofs the cult movie "Escape from New York."
"Escape from Baldwin Park" will be presented at 7 p.m. June 1 and June 8 at Theatre Downtown, 2113 N. Orange Ave, Orlando. Tickets are $12 and available at 407-841-0083.
