The next play in our 25th Anniversary Season was scheduled to be the modern comedy Beer for Breakfast by Sean Grennan. Circumstances have come about that make it necessary for us to alter the schedule and offer a different play.
In its place, we are now preparing to present a more classic comedy, the 1980 Broadway hit I Ought To Be In Pictures by master playwright Neil Simon.
I Ought To Be In Pictures tells the story of out-of-work Hollywood writer Herb, whose past catches up to him when Libby, his almost-forgotten but supremely confident daughter from a failed marriage shows up at his door, asking for his help with a start in the movie business.
Simon’s famous wit is on full display as we watch Herb try to figure out how to be a Dad to Libby, a better partner to his long-suffering girlfriend Steffy, maybe even a better man, and give Libby what she really needs.
The show will star David (Last Gas) Cummings as “Herb,” Emery (Blind Date) Dorman as Libby, and Michele (Fuddy Meers) VanFossen as “Steffy.” It’s directed by Sheldon Boyce with Brad Gilbert as Assistant Director/Stage Manager.
We think you’ll really enjoy this replacement title. If you have tickets for Beer For Breakfast, they’ve already been transferred to the same performance of I Ought To Be In Pictures. If you choose, you can request a change by replying to this eBlast or calling our Box Office at (830) 896-9393.
We’ll see you at the VK Garage Theater for Neil Simon’s I Ought To Be In Pictures, June 9 through 25.
