Le Petit Theatre de Terrebonne's last show of the season, Jerry Mayer's "2 Across," directed by Edwina Yakupzack and opening April 27, is already accepting seating reservations.
Two strangers, an uptight psychologist (Danielle Marchive) and an unemployed loose cannon ad man (Steve Crispino) find themselves alone on a San Francisco commuter train at 4 a.m., each doing their New York Times crossword puzzles. But before their crosswords are solved, they find that they may have solved the puzzles of their own lives.
The show runs through May 6, with no performance April 30.

Pure spam! So pure that that my e-mail spam filter recognized and isolated it:
Mike Williams, "officer designated to investigate money brought into United States from other countries in cash," found a stash of cash meant for me but undelivered. Technicalities."I can use my position to get this money delivered to you if you are sincere to yourself. as i have assured you that i will handle this. there would be no trace or implication at all, I wait to hear from you." I hope Mike is not holding his breath.
Mrs. Jane Milne Robert, in another spam message, is equally helpful, "Regarding a Bank Draft inheritance cheque of $10.5 Million I sent to you which was returned back due to wrong address provided. Don't you forget that this Bank Draft was the one awarded to you by Mr. Glenn Thomas, my late husband who died in a Malaysian airline MH17 on March 8, 2014." She only needs "reconfirmation of Your Postal/delivery address: Your Full Names: Direct telephone number.
"Mind you, you should never pay for the delivery Charges, the Insurance premium and the Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque because I already have paid for them, the only fee which you are expected to pay is $380.00 USD for the security keeping & intuity fee of the cheque."
And if you run across an Internet warning about an impending "Killer 'Klebsi Plague,'" consult with a fact-checker like Snopes, (www.snopes.com/news/2018/02/20/klebsi-plague-agora) before you bite.
