Alliance Repertory Theatre Company has an all-female cast for its season opening Fall comedy Jane Martin's "ANTON IN SHOW BUSINESS".
The cast performs multiple roles (including some male!); Alzie Rejouis- Paterson, Elizabeth Belonzi- Hoboken, Gloria Lamoureaux-Succasunna, Jennifer Robbins- Mountain Lakes, Kristina Hernandez- Westfield, Mary Sullivan- Freehold and Nina Martin-New Brunswick.
This madcap comedy follows three actresses as they pursue their dream of performing "Chekhov" in Texas. The play's hilarious journey conveys all the joys, pains and absurdities of " putting on a play" as it pokes fun of such issues as gender roles, multi- culturalism, arts funding and the tobacco industry.
Michael Driscoll, Director, states, "This cast of seven women is not only extremely talented and hardworking, they are also a delight to work with. Come see the show, they will surely tickle your funny bone! "
"Anton in Show Business" will open on Friday, October 11th and run through Saturday, October 26th at Edison Valley Playhouse (a/k/a Historic Edison Valley Playhouse), 2196 Oak Tree Rd in Edison, New Jersey.
