The reading with the authors/stars Elizabeth Fuller and Joel Vig will be held in their Johnson Theatre at 155 First Avenue (between 9th and 10th Streets). It will begin at 7:00pm and the audience is asked to be there by 6:30pm.

New Season Newsletter

Dear Friends,

We are calling this our New Season Newsletter since it is our first one since returning from vacation—and it is indeed about the upcoming theatre season.

Before we begin, though, we’d like to tell you that we have been away in Ocean City, New Jersey. This is our 12th year to be visiting—and we just think it is a marvelous place to go! Let us know if you’d like to hear more.

Exciting news about our newest play, Adoption Roulette: as we’ve told you before, this is a play about a couple in Westport, Connecticut who are trying to adopt a child in Russia. We are moving ahead with plans to produce the play this winter, and our next act is to arrange another reading of the play in Manhattan with a lovely theatre company—Theatre for the New City—which has four theatres downtown and plans to present a Reading of our play hopefully in October.

The actors for this performance will be the two authors, Elizabeth Fuller and Joel Vig, both of whom are excellent actors in addition to be excellent writers.

We are very excited about this project and we will let you know as soon as plans are finalized.

Meanwhile, the Broadway season is about to get under way and we will be sharing more information with you in the upcoming weeks.

Best wishes,
Philip & Marilyn

Summer Update

Dear Friends,

We hope this finds you well and enjoying your summer! We cannot believe how quickly it has passed by—but here we are in mid-August and we wanted to share with you a few updates.

Our new play Adoption Roulette, which we are featuring for our Centennial Celebrations next year, will be having readings in Connecticut in the next few weeks. We are so excited that there has been so much interest and support in this important play about a Connecticut couple trying to adopt a child in Russia. It is good, and we cannot wait to move it forward! In addition to readings, we are actively looking for an actress to play the main character. More details as things progress.

In other news, it’s that time of the year when we pack it up and head down the coast with our family for a bit of r&r before our granddaughters go back to school. During this time, we’ll take the opportunity to resend some past Newsletters of interest.

That’s the news from here!

Happy summer!

Adoption Roulette

Dear Friends,

We cannot tell you what a spectacular evening we had this past Wednesday seeing the play Adoption Roulette at The Lambs.

You may remember from our Monday post that  we would be attending a reading of a new play—and it was just remarkable!

It was written and performed by Elizabeth Fuller and Joel Vig and is the true-life story of Elizabeth and her husband trying to adopt a child from Russia. They soon find themselves trapped in a story which has all the elements of a Hitchcock thriller set in Siberia.

And we must tell you, the entire audience was spell-bound and glued to their seats. So much so that when the performance was over, no one moved, and everyone had questions!

It was such a wonderful happening and we couldn’t be more thrilled that we hope to present it soon in other theatres.

Best,
Philip & Marilyn
