The collection of sketch-comedy-like scenes and monologues, written and directed by Matt Morillo, is being shuttered so the producers can "prepare for their upcoming production of The Marriage Hearse," also by Morillo, to be presented by Theater for the New City from Jan. 3-31, 2008.
The comic Angry Young Women has enjoyed three Manhattan engagements (which will total 106 performances).
It premiered at the Duo Theater Jan. 19-Feb. 25, 2006 and was revived by Theater for the New City Jan. 4-Feb. 24, 2007.
In Sydney, Australia, Stella Green Productions produced 31 performances with an Australian cast from Aug. 14-Sept. 2, 2007. The Off-Broadway production opened at the Players Theatre on July 12.
By the time it closes, Angry Young Women will have played 51 performances at The Players at Macdougal and Minetta. "It's time to move on after nearly two years of various runs," said author/director Matt Morillo, who describes his next play, The Marriage Hearse, as "a serious comedy about the irrelevance of the institution of marriage in modern society."
John Driscoll, who is well known to Daytime TV fans from CBS' "Guiding Light," joined the cast of Angry Young Women on Sept. 13. Driscoll took over two roles in the comedy: Ronnie, a happy-go-lucky lover of career women, and Barry, a B-movie idol.
Performances play Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 PM, Sundays at 3 PM. For tickets and information, call (212) 352-3101 or visit www.angryyoungwomen.net.
