LUCKY ME

7/31/2014

Location: New Jersey Repertory Company

Description: New Jersey Repertory Company, located at 179 Broadway in Long Branch, is proud to present the National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere of Lucky Me by Robert Caisley, directed by SuzAnne Barabas and starring Dan Grimaldi, Wendy Peace, Michael Irvin Pollard and Mark Light-Orr.

From the playwright who brought us Happy comes a whimsical, romantic comedy about love, aging, cracked windows, broken bones, airport security, and bad luck.

Sara Fine’s having a bad week. The light bulbs in her apartment keep burning out; the aquarium is perpetually full of dead fish; the cat’s gone AWOL, again, and her blind, elderly father who chased off her last beau is immediately suspicious of Tom, the new neighbor, a TSA agent who just brought Sara home from the emergency room on New Year’s Eve with a fractured 5th metatarsal. As Tom’s attraction to Sara intensifies, he learns of an increasingly bizarre streak of bad luck that’s been haunting Sara for years – twenty two years to be precise.

Lucky Me begins preview performances on Thursday, July 31 and celebrates its opening night on Saturday, August 2 at New Jersey Repertory Company (179 Broadway, Long Branch, NJ), and runs through Sunday, August 31. Tickets may be purchased by calling 732-229-3166 or online at www.njrep.org.

The production team includes: Jessica Parks (Set Design & Props), Jill Nagle (Lighting Design), Merek Royce Press (Sound Design), Patricia E. Doherty (Costume Design), Michael Carroll (Technical Director), and Jennifer Tardibuono (Stage Manager).

The three-time Tony Award winning farce Lend Me A Tenor by Ken Ludwig was a sensation on Broadway (twice!), in London's West End and this summer hits the Jersey Shore. This madcap, screwball comedy leaves audiences teary-eyed with laughter. Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world famous, Tito Morelli, Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as Otello. The star arrives late and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he's dead. In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Morelli's Otello costume and fool the audience into thinking he's Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume ready to perform. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo.

"A remarkable piece of theatre... a masterpiece... Author Ken Ludwig has verve, a sound grasp of plot mechanics and a rare ability to couple high art with low comedy." - The London Times

"A furiously paced comedy with more than a touch of the Marx brothers... A marvelous combination of wonderful farcical moments and funny lines." - Time Out New York

"Non stop laughter." - Variety

"Uproarious! Hysterical!" - USA Today

The star arrives late and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he's dead. In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Morelli's Otello costume and fool the audience into thinking he's Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume ready to perform. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo.

What They Said about "Lend Me A Tenor"

"An accelerating snowball of laughter, Lend Me A Tenor has the class and charm of a Kaufman and Hart comedy plus all the door-slamming hilarity of a Marx Brothers' classic like Room Service." - Jim Helsinger, PA Shakespeare Festival

"A remarkable piece of theatre... a masterpiece... Author Ken Ludwig has verve, a sound grasp of plot mechanics and a rare ability to couple high art with low comedy." - The London Times

"A furiously paced comedy with more than a touch of the Marx brothers... A marvelous combination of wonderful farcical moments and funny lines." - Time Out New York

"Non stop laughter." - Variety

"Uproarious! Hysterical!" - USA Today

"A rib tickling comedy." - The New York Post

"Screamingly funny!" - CBS Radio
