Tony Winner John Rando directs off-B'way Acting Company reading of PUCK'D!

Last night, Tony Winner John Rando (BACK TO THE FUTURE: The Musical, URIINETOWN) directed an all-star cast of Broadway funny folk in a sold-out off-Broadway reading of my new comedy PUCK'D: A Middle-Aged Night's Dream - produced by The Acting Company at Playwrights Horizons. It was a thrilling night - and while I can't share video of the actual reading, here's a snippet of our Standing O!

This is just the beginning for this play. In the meantime, thanks to John, the Acting Company... and our hilarious cast:

Suzanne Cryer (Broadway's Proposals, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, HBO’s "Silicon Valley”, CBS’s “All Rise”, ABC’s “Two Guys and a Girl”) as Helena

Tom McGowan (Broadway's Kiss Me Kate, She Loves Me, Casa Valentina, NBC's "Frasier," CBS's "Everybody Loves Raymond") as Lysander

Jennifer Simard (Broadway's Once Upon A One More Time, Company, Mean Girls, Disaster!, Hello, Dolly!) as Hermia

Ezra Knight (Broadway’s Cymbeline, Festen, Showtime’s “Billions,” CBS’s “East New York”) as Demetrius

PUCK'D: A Middle-Aged Summer Night's Dream

In this farcical sequel to A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare's four young lovers are now middle-aged and unhappily married. Chasing after their own teenaged kids - who have impetuously fled into the enchanted woods to elope - the two aging couples once again fall under the forest's spell (and the mischievousness of an existentially-depressed Puck and his fairy queen Titania). As they shift from prose to rhyming couplets in iambic-ish pentameter, the four middle-aged lovers must face their deepest fears and - youthful passions rekindled - decide whether to evolve together or end their relationships once and for all. A comic, heartfelt play filled with romantic misfires and magical hijinks - about how for marriages to thrive long-term, we must all "return to the woods" - and grow.
