Traverse City Events: A “sweeping buffet of tastes and flavors” is on the menu this season at the Old Town Playhouse. Now in its 53rd season, OTP offers everything from hearty, rich family themes—Over the River and Through the Woods (Jan 11–26) and Humble Boy (Oct 5–20)—to light-hearted confections of Legally Blonde (March 1–23) and An Ideal Husband (May 3–18) to the engaging and spicy The Last Five Years (September 14–29), Little Dog Laughed and The Pillowman (April 12–27). Rich and steeped in ethnic flavor, Man of La Mancha (November 2–24) and The Good Doctor (November 30–December 15) bring the timeless themes of Cervantes and Chekhov to the fore, expertly blended with the music and the talents of Neil Simon.
