The final fall presentation by Emporia State University Theatre opens Wednesday and runs through Saturday. “The House of Blue Leaves” tells the tale of Artie Shaughnessy, a songwriter who toils by day as a zookeeper. At night, he plays at piano bars in Queens where he lives with his wife, Bananas. His mistress, Bunny Flingus lives downstairs. On the day the Pope is making his first visit to the city, Artie’s son Ronny goes AWOL from Fort Dix, stowing a homemade bomb. Also arriving are Artie’s old school chum Billy, now a successful Hollywood producer, and his starlet girlfriend.
