Jules Feiffer's 1990 play, Elliot Loves, receives a New York revival Dec. 2 - Dec. 20, at the Orenda Theatre -- with Feiffer on hand watching rehearsals and rewriting text.
In Elliot Loves, a neurotic man subjects his lover to review by his equally neurotic friends as an audition, of sorts, for marriage. The play made its New York debut at the Manhattan Theatre Club in 1990, directed by Mike Nichols and starring Christine Baranski, Anthony Heald, and David Hyde Pierce (of "Frazier").
Feiffer, who is also a famous cartoonist, is the author of several plays including: Little Murders (1967 Obie Award), The White House Murder Case, Feiffer's People and Carnal Knowledge .
Marie Masters directs the cast of Cal Hoffman, Loren Brown, Colette Bryce, Tim House, James Lorenzo, and Michael Wright.
Elliot Loves began previews at the Orenda Theatre (432 W. 42nd St.) on Nov. 25, for a run Dec. 2-20. For tickets ($16) or more information, call (212) 695-0349. -- By Sean McGrath
