The idea of heaven being a steambath isn't that far fetched. After all, the atmosphere is supposed to give rise to a peaceful, relaxing experience. Carolina Actor's Studio Theatre's opening production of the season, Steambath is a comedy that takes you beyond cloudy images of the afterlife for a sweaty encounter — did I forget to mention that God is a Puerto Rican towel boy? $20-$25.
