Comedy on stage
Willimantic - posted Jan, 24 2014
WILLIMANTIC- The Windham Theatre Guild kicks off 2014 with another winning comedy production: "The Love List" written by Norm Foster, Canada’s most popular playwright, known for his familiar Neil Simon comedy style. WTG first introduced area theatre goers to Norm Foster with the production of "Opening Night" and then again with his hilarious "Bedtime Stories." The Love List opens Friday, Feb. 7 at the Burton Leavitt Theater. Foster's cleverly constructed script takes aim at aging singles and contemporary dating services by imagining what might happen when one man gets the chance to request his dream date and actually has the order filled. Be careful what you wish for, especially in choosing a mate! This old adage leads to hilarious results in this sparkling comic hit. "The Love List" runs Feb. 7, 8, 14 and 15 at 8 p.m., Thursday, Feb.16 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday matinees on February 9 and 16 Burton Leavitt Theatre, 779 Main Street, Willimantic. Ticket prices are $18 for adults, $15 for students/seniors, and $11 for children under 12. All UCONN, ECSU and QVCC students pay the discounted price of $12. Group discounts are also available. For reservations and information, call the Windham Theatre Guild at 860-423-2245 or buy your tickets on-line at windhamtheatreguild.org.
