The Whitby Courthouse Theatre presents Two on the Aisle, Three in the Van! A stressed-out artistic director, a wanna-be diva who’s realizing her ingénue expiration date has just about passed, a board member’s nephew vying to direct the musicals with a Tarrentino spin and the “I’m no chorus boy” chorus boy who thinks every show should have a kick line – are just some of the egos and obstacles that fall into the lap of Mike, a nice-guy director who ends up with far more than he bargained for.
