"1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated." The Alhambra Theatre & Dining will open a brand new show, “Weekend Comedy”, and welcome Cindy Williams to its family of guest stars. Cindy brings her considerable talents to the Alhambra for four special weeks, September 18 – October 20, 2013.
Cindy Williams is best known for starring from 1976 to 1982 in the television situation-comedy series “Laverne & Shirley” in the role of Shirley Feeney; and for her role as Laurie Henderson in the classic film “American Graffiti.”
Williams began her professional career by landing national commercials, which included: Foster Grant sunglasses and TWA. Her first roles in television, among others, were on Room 222, Nanny and the Professor and Love, American Style.
About the Show: In “Weekend Comedy”, two couples, one older and one younger have accidentally rented the same cottage for a three-day weekend. They decide to share it. The show unfolds with a comedic clash between generations.
Craig Smith, managing partner of the Alhambra Theatre & Dining states, “We could not be more excited to welcome Cindy to our Alhambra family.” The few times I have mentioned it to audiences before a show, they have gasped. She is a wonderful person and a wonderful actor, and I know Jacksonville will welcome her as we all have. The show is fantastic and got rave reviews where it’s played. It will be a great fall frolic here, too.”
The Menu: Executive Chef DeJuan Roy has created a menu for Weekend Comedy that is consistent with the show’s themes which will be plated and served to the table. In this case, the themes play on the “Weekend Comedy” mountain cabin experience. Salad choices: Chopped romaine with tomato, cucumber, olives, peppers, and feta cheese herb dressing; or a Wild boar sausage and fire roasted peppers skewer with honey lavender dressing. Entrée choices: Smoked Beef Brisket with Kansas City barbecue sauce, pasta salad primavera, or Cast Iron Local Trout with brown butter sweet potato and leak au gratin and green beans or Smothered Pork Chops with yellow rice and lima beans. The Vegetarian Entrée: features Spinach and White Cheddar Quiche with quinoa salad.
