Alliance Repertory Theatre Company's next production is Gulf View Drive


The Alliance Repertory Theatre Company's next play is GULF VIEW DRIVE. It will run weekends Jan 13th to the 28th (2012!) Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 PM and Sunday matinees at 2 PM. 


A young couple’s dream of a quiet life is interrupted by some surprising visits from their relatives. Soon the house will become bursting at the seams, family tensions will surface and they will face difficult moral choices. Challenged to the very core of their beliefs, they must consider unconventional solutions in order to find peace in a changing world. GULF VIEW DRIVE is a warm, moving and uplifting story set against the portrait of a changing America in the mid-20th century.

It will be performed at the Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway.

Bergen County Players to present Modern Orthodox


Bergen County Players (BCP) of Oradell to present "Modern Orthodox," Daniel Goldfarb’s hilarious romantic comedy about a young Orthodox houseguest who upends the lives of an Upper West Side secular Jewish couple. 
Directed by Steve Bell of Teaneck, "Modern Orthodox" will be performed at the Little Firehouse Theatre in Oradell from January 14th through February 4th, 2012 with shows at 8pm on Friday and Saturday and 2pm on Sunday. 
Darren Carfano and Jordan Zaretsky
 Tickets can be purchased online at www.bcplayers.org, by calling 201-261-4200, or by visiting the box office at 298 Kinderkamack Road in Oradell during regular box office hours.

Variety said, “Daniel Goldfarb has written an adorable romantic comedy, with honest to God belly laughs, about love and sex and faith and friendship.” The New York Times called "Modern Orthodox," “A sharp, snappy romantic comedy.” The New York Post called the play “Hilarious. There are lots of belly laughs, thanks to playwright Daniel Goldfarb's ability to craft genuinely funny one-liners."


 

In a Manhattan coffee shop Ben (Jordan Zaretsky), a sweet, sensitive Upper West Side financial consultant, meets Hershel (Darren Carfano), a young self-righteous Orthodox jewelry merchant, to buy an engagement ring. Although both men are Jewish, it is their shared religion that instantly divides them. Tensions mount in the midst of the deal when Ben suggests Hershel remove his yarmulke. Desperate to make the sale, Hershel obliges. This thoughtless deed sets into motion a journey of discovery for both the secular Westside couple and the young Orthodox diamond merchant from Brooklyn. When Ben proposes to his girlfriend, Hannah (Vanessa Garrabrant), a sensitive yet strong-minded doctor, the moment is muddled by mixed emotions for each of them and the sudden and unexpected arrival of Hershel on their doorstep. He demands that Ben right the wrong he did by helping him find a new bride. Their efforts result in a riotous first dinner date at a kosher restaurant between Hershel and the outlandish bachelorette Rachel (Joanna Koster). In the end, both sides learn a more universal lesson, the importance of faith, whether in God or in love, and the value of maintaining one’s roots.

Director Steve Bell of Teaneck is a long-time BCP Life member and past president who has been active with the Players for over thirty years having directed productions of Curtains, The Little Dog Laughed, The King and I, Urinetown, Deathtrap, Lucky Stiff, The Emperor’s New Clothes, Gypsy,  Jerry's Girls, Light Up the Sky, and Baby, among others.  In addition, Bell served as musical director for numerous productions including The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Seussical the Musical, Sweeney Todd, and The Most Happy Fella.  As a performer, he appeared in a variety of musicals and plays, including The Full Monty, A Year With Frog and Toad, Anything Goes, Into the Woods, Noises Off and Follies (Perry Award winner for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical). Steve teaches vocal music at Teaneck High School and is the Artistic Director of the Teaneck Community Chorus.


Jordan Zaretsky of South Amboy plays the funny and charming financial consultant Ben Jacobson.  Jordan boasts numerous BCP credits to his name including, Rapunzarella White, Honk, Bus Stop, A Few Good Men, Six Degrees of Separation, Extremities, and Snow White Goes West. By day, Jordan is a firefighter/EMT and commercial pilot/flight instructor. 


Darren Carfano of Suffern, NY plays the meddlesome neurotic Orthodox diamond dealer Hershel Klein. His previous credits with BCP include Honk and Comic Potential. When not performing, Darren works for Columbia Bank in marketing.

Vanessa (Pellecchia) Garrabrant of Harriman, NY plays Ben’s fiancée, the savvy yet sensitive Hannah Ziggelstein. Vanessa’s on-stage credits at BCP include roles in Seussical the Musical, Urinetown, A Year with Frog and Toad, Follies in Concert, The King and I and Brooklyn Boy. Vanessa has also served as choreographer for numerous BCP productions. By day, she works as Senior Operations and Finance Assistant for John Wiley and Sons.

Bakersfield Mist held over at the New Jersey Repertory Company

BAKERSFIELD MIST HELD OVER THRU FEB 5
Click for additional information, video previews and online ticketing.
Click for additional information and online ticketing.
  LONG BRANCH - “Bakersfield Mist,” a National New Play Network world premiere comedy by Stephen Sachs which opened on October 13, has been extended at the New Jersey Repertory Company in Long Branch through February 5. The play began its triumphant run in Los Angeles here it was held over month after month for six months before coming to Long Branch where it once again played to sold-out audiences.

The unlikely heroine of “Bakersfield Mist” is Maude Gutman (Linda S. Nelson), an unemployed, Jack Daniels swigging bartender, who lives in a trailer park in the seamy part of town. Events are set off when she purchases a painting at a thrift shop for three bucks, but then learns that it may be a Jackson Pollock worth tens of millions. Maude convinces the foundation that authenticates Pollock’s work to send their straight-laced expert, Lionel Percy (John FitzGibbon), to pass judgment on the work, and that’s when the sparks begin to fly.

Theater-goers should make their reservations now, for it has just been announced that the play has been optioned by multiple Tony award-winning producer, Sonia Friedman, for productions in London and New York. New Jersey Rep has been recognized as one of the leading theaters in the country developing new works and local audiences have the chance to see “Bakersfield Mist,” in their own back-yard before it embarks on its international journey.
NJ REP A BOUTIQUE THEATER FOR PASSIONATE THEATER GOERS
