Next at NJ Rep: Robert Caisley's National New Play Network world premiere ‘LUCKY ME’


Robert Caisley's National New Play Network world premiere, LUCKY ME,  begins Thursday, July 31 at New Jersey Repertory Company, located at 179 Broadway in Long Branch, and will run through August 31.

From the playwright who brought us Happy comes a whimsical, romantic comedy about love, aging, cracked windows, broken bones, airport security, and bad luck.... directed by SuzAnne Barabas and starring Dan Grimaldi (The Sopranos), Wendy Peace, Michael Irvin Pollard and Mark Light-Orr.

Sara Fine’s having a bad week. The light bulbs in her apartment keep burning out; the aquarium is perpetually full of dead fish; the cat’s gone AWOL, again, and her blind, elderly father -- who chased off her last beau -- is immediately suspicious of Tom, the new neighbor, a TSA agent who just brought Sara home from the emergency room on New Year’s Eve with a fractured 5th metatarsal. As Tom’s attraction to Sara intensifies, he learns of an increasingly bizarre streak of bad luck that’s been haunting Sara for years – twenty two years to be precise.

Lucky Me begins preview performances Thursday, July 31 and celebrates its opening night Saturday, August 2 at New Jersey Repertory Company (179 Broadway, Long Branch, NJ), and runs through Sunday, August 31.

Tickets may be purchased by calling 732-229-3166 or online at
