Taconic Stage Company and Mac-Haydn Theatre have a perfect recipe for a girls’ night out on Mondays this August. The Real (Desperate) Housewives of Columbia County, a hilarious musical revue loosely based on those ubiquitous TV shows, is essentially a friendly (and boozy) battle between the weekenders and the locals in New York’s Columbia County.

The musical numbers are all original songs such as, “Don’t Fool Around on Your Broker,” “Shop Till You Drop,” “A Good Handyman Is Hard to Find,” and “It Isn’t Easy Being a Bitch.”

The limited run is four performances – today (Monday, August 1) and Monday, August 15 at 3 & 8pm. at the Mac-Haydn Theatre in Chatham. Tickets are $25 and are available by calling 518-392-9292 or go to www.machaydntheatre.org.
