A hooker, an ex-convict, the con's transvestite step-brother. These are the main characters in In-Betweens, a play by Bryan Goluboff that finally makes its New York premiere two years after its original opening date.
Though In-Betweens was closed abruptly during final dress rehearsal in May 1994 at the Westside Theatre, two of the producers recently caught the play at the Belmont Italian American Playhouse (BIAP) in the Bronx (an appropriate locale, since the play's action occurs in the same neighborhood) and decided to bring it to Off-Broadway's Cherry Lane Theatre on Commerce St.
Appearing in In-Betweens are original Blue Man Group member Andrew Miller, Carolyn Baeumler, Tony Cucci and Mark Hutchinson. Dante Albertie, artistic director of BIAP, directs the love story, which opens Feb. 18. Sets and costumes are by Beowulf Borritt; lighting by Ken Moreland, sound by Hector Olivieri. Producing the show are Evangeline Morphos, Judith Resnick, Richard & Joan Firestone, Fred Zollo and Mara Gibbs.
Other works by Goluboff include Big Al and Hey Buddy which both played at the American Jewish Theatre, My Side Of The Story (Ensemble Studio Theatre) and The Other Five Percent (a Dramalogue winner in L.A.).
