(a co-production of Vintage Theatre and Lowry's Spotlight Theatre)
Vintage Theatre: July 9 – July 23

In Terrence McNally’s show biz satire, “It’s Only a Play," everyone gets roasted: producer, director, actors and even a critic!
      McNally, whose writing credits include the book for “Ragtime” as well as “Love, Valour Compassion" and "Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune,” has penned yet another evening of theatre that will have you smiling, chuckling and guffawing as the show unspools.
      It all takes place in the producer’s bedroom as the opening night party rages below.
      Katie Mangett’s direction of McNally’s delightful
romp accentuates all the nervous tics and hilarious histrionics of this coterie of theatre folk as they anxiously await the review from The New York Times.
     Smart, sassy and hilariously funny, this cast is full of comedic talents that will keep you delighted from curtain to curtain.     
     Bernie Cardell, Kelly Uhlenhopp, Perry Lewis, Anne Myers, Seth Harris, Leroy Leonard and Michael O’Shea create a truly balanced evening of ensemble theatre.
     The references to theatre both locally and on Broadway are legion. None of the send-ups will be mentioned here, however. So no need for spoiler alerts! Just go and have a wonderful night of theatre.
     In these times do we need to laugh! And are you gonna!!!
