News   Beer For Breakfast, a Comedy About Three Guys, One Woman and a Secluded Cabin, Opens Jan. 11 in KC World Premiere
 
American Heartland Theatre in Kansas City, MO, taps the keg of Beer for Breakfast, a new comedy by New York City playwright Sean Grennan Jan. 11. The world premiere, which began Jan. 6 and plays to Feb. 19, is directed by AHT artistic director Paul Hough and features Grennan among the cast of four.

The comic look at contemporary middle-aged living is about a reunion of pals at a cabin over a wintry weekend.

Here's how AHT characterizes it: "Four middle aged buddies reunite for a 'guys weekend' complete with old music, cheap beer and enough cholesterol to stop Superman's heart. These guys are out to prove they've still got it, so they are going to party like it's 1978! It's all going well until one of them doesn't show up...but his wife does. Snowed-in overnight, an epic struggles ensues: Will man be judged the superior sex or will woman prevail? Will love triumph or will the old grudges win? And finally, perhaps most importantly, if Doritos are made of corn, why can't they be considered a serving of vegetables?"

The cast also includes Scott Cordes, Cathy Barnett and Martin English.

Grennan is a favorite writer of AHT. His musicals with Leah Okimoto, Married Alive!, A Dog's Life and Another Night Before Christmas, premiered at American Heartland. Later this season, his new comedy-mystery As Long As We Both Shall Live will premiere there.

Grennan's family comedy-drama Making God Laugh premiered in summer 2011 at Peninsula Players in Door County, WI. His work includes Phantom of the Country Opera (published by MTI and produced by Marriott Theatre in Chicago) and Ms. Cinderella (Marriott Theatre). His musical Rodeo was a finalist at the L.A. ASCAP/Disney Musical Theatre Festival in 2002 and, subsequently, was the sole ASCAP-sponsored work in the Perry-Mansfield "New Noises" festival in Steamboat Springs, CO. He also penned the non-musical comedy Luck! AHT operates under an agreement with Actors' Equity Association in a 440-seat theatre located in downtown Kansas City in Crown Center.
