GableStage at the Biltmore, is proud to announce the South Florida Premiere of THE NEW CENTURY, by Paul Rudnick, opening on June 20 and running through July 19.
This riotous comedy, produced at Lincoln Center last season, centers around three delicious characters-a super-flamboyant Palm Beach TV host, a Jewish mother from Long Island, and a cheery Midwestern craftswoman-who collide in New York City under surprising circumstances. The hilarious results demonstrate just where our New Century might be heading.
The New York Times raved, "if Leno and Letterman regularly scored this ratio of hits to quips, much of America would be hospitalized with late-night laughter burn!" and the New York Post wrote that, "the evening contains so many gut-busting one-liners that those with heart conditions are advised to steer clear."
Paul Rudnick's plays have been produced both on and off-Broadway and around the world. They include The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told, I Hate Hamlet and Jeffrey for which he won an Obie, an Outer Critics Circle Award and the John Gassner Playwriting Award. His novels are Social Disease and I'll Take It, both published by Knopf. His articles and essays have appeared in The New Yorker, Esquire, Vogue, Vanity Fair and The New York Times. His screenplays include Addams Family Values, the screen adaptation of Jeffrey and In & Out.
GableStage is pleased to announce a stellar cast (and directors and designers) - in alphabetical order, Sally Bondi, John Felix, Patti Gardner, Daniel Landon and Jehane Seralles. Direction is by Joseph Adler, set by Tim Connelly, lights by Jeff Quinn, costumes by Ellis Tillman, stage manager is Kristen Pieski.
