This sounds like a really stupid idea...

And fodder for a hundred bad puns, but it actually seems pretty clever...

Ladies and Gents, a play from Ireland with a cast of six, will open on Monday for a two-week engagement in the public bathrooms near the Bethesda Fountain in New York's Central Park.

The play has of two acts -- one that takes place in the ladies’ room and one that takes place in the men's room.

This is the clever part, the audience splits upon arrival, each half seeing a different act first, and after a brief intermission the halves of the audience switch bathrooms. In the play’s chronology the acts are taking place simultaneously, and each act answers questions raised in its counterpart. From the NY Times.

Okay, these are mine:

If it's a hit, it'll move to Flushing Meadow.

The #1 Play of the Year.
