George Street Playhouse revives Terrence McNally's comedic love letter to live theatre.
Terrence McNally is considered one of the greatest contemporary American playwrights in recent history. In this laugh-out-loud comedy, he presents a love letter to the resilience of live theatre, and an homage to the people that -- even when things seem impossible -- always believe that the marquee will be lit again, and the show must go on!
"This uniquely clever comedy is excellently co-directed by Kevin Cahoon and Colin Hanlon. Don't miss it! You'll laugh, and laugh some more at zany, yet relatable happenings...The cast is so convincing in their roles, you'll believe that the opening night party is unfolding in real time. The troupe's comedic timing is nothing less than perfect as they deliver the fast paced dialogue with zingers galore."
"It’s Only a Play is fast and funny. It is a show to lift one’s spirits and revel in the misfortunes of others, no matter how much those misfortunes are of their own making. It is a marvelous, glittery, spinning top of a play, and I urge you to see it. Kudos to the George Street Playhouse for bringing this lively comedy back to the stage!"
"A fine line separates farce from chaos. If you have seen an amateur production of Noises Off, you may have seen chaos. If you see the George Street Playhouse production of It’s Only a Play, you will see farce, and farce well done."
