Opening March 20 after previews from March 11, the staging will star Joe Regalbuto ("Murphy Brown") and DeeDee Rescher ("King of Queens"), with Cyrus Alexander, John Capodice, Heather Corwin, Joel Johnstone and Roberta Valderrama.
Everybody Say "Cheese!" is the final production in Falcon's 2008-09 all-comedy subscription season. Steve Zuckerman directs.
According to Falcon notes, "It's the '60s in the Bronx, for everyone but Harriet (DeeDee Rescher) and Leo Keenan (Joe Regalbuto). Harriet's about to turn 50, and after years of being the picture-perfect wife and mother, she decides it's time to join the women's movement before it stops moving. But her liberation requires the help of her husband, Leo, whose greatest ambition in life is to die before something happens to him."
