More of Steve Martin's "Underpants" in Sarasota

   Florida Studio Theatre's staging of the "The Underpants," a farce adapted by Steve Martin from an obscure 100-year-old German play, is such a hit that FST has added more shows. It's now set to run through Aug. 3.

   The story has to do with a woman who's watching the king pass by in a parade. She rises up onto her toes to get a better look, and her underpants fall to the ground. Two men who see it happen become obsessed with her.
   It has messages abut feminism and celebrity, but director Bruce Jordan says that at its heart it's meant to be pure comic entertainment.
    Tickets start at $32. Call 941-366-9000 or go to www.floridastudiotheatre.org.
