8:00 PM-10:00 PM
Actors’ Playhouse, together with GFour Productions, producers of Menopause The Musical® and the Tony-nominated The Inheritance and Fiddler on the Roof, are proud to kick off the 2021-2022 Mainstage season with a co-production of their new play MIDDLETOWN® by Dan Clancy. The cast will star DIDI CONN, known for her portrayal of Frenchy in GREASE; DONNY MOST, who starred as Ralph Malph in HAPPY DAYS; LORETTA SWIT, best known for her portrayal of Major Margaret “Hot Lips” Houlihan on M*A*S*H, for which she won two Emmy Awards; and ADRIAN ZMED, best known for his starring roles in the BACHELOR PARTY, GREASE 2 and TV’s T.J. HOOKER.
Through the highs, the lows, and everything in-between, MIDDLETOWN® is the ride of your life. Follow the story of two couples — Peg and Tom, and Dotty and Don — as they endure the rollercoaster of life together in this exhilarating and universal depiction of love, life and friendship.
As the New Hope Free Press describes, “Like Love Letters, the ‘play’s the thing,’ as Shakespeare might say. The show has four podiums downstage where the actors stand with scripts before them. … For all intents and purposes, this is just the actor telling you their stories with no blocking. This only works if the stories are worth telling and the actors are good enough to tell them. And the answer is a resounding YES!”
