When you hear Woody Allen’s name, you probably think movies. But he’s also written a few plays, and one of them is currently onstage at the Showboat Majestic on the Public Landing. His 1966 farce, Don’t Drink the Water, was a solid hit on Broadway, running for nearly two years.

It’s set in an American embassy behind the Iron Curtain, with some tourists hiding out from police who think they’ve been spying. It has a bit of romance, as well as a lot of Allen-esque humor. 

Through Aug. 25. $19-$20. 435 E. Mehring Way, Public Landing, Downtown, 513-241-6550, cincinnatilandmarkproductions.com.
