Guare's Cop-Out and Talking Dog Seen at Gene Frankel Theatre, Oct. 6

News   Guare's Cop-Out and Talking Dog Seen at Gene Frankel Theatre, Oct. 6 Two of John Guare's more obscure plays, Cop-Out and The Talking Dog, will be presented as a full evening at the Gene Frankel Theatre beginning Oct. 6.

The show is a venture of Red Radar Productions. Ronit Muszkatblit directs a cast the includes Monica Arazi, Kevin T. Collins, Kevin Dwyer and Emily Rome Mudd.

Cop-Out is described as "a kinetic farce about love and war.  While a straight-arrow policeman falls in love with a war protester at a demonstration, his alter-ego—a hard-boiled detective straight out of 50's era film noir—mixes with femme fatales, dead presidents and Marilyn Monroe trying to solve his biggest case ever."

Cop-Out was paired with Guare's Home Fires for a brief (12 performances) Broadway run in 1969. Linda Lavin and Ron Liebman—then married and hailed as the theatre couple of the moment—starred.

  The Talking Dog is adapted from Chekhov's "A Joke." When a man and a woman go on a hang-gliding trip, the woman thinks she hears the man shout "I love you" in mid-air. However, when back on the ground, he won't repeat his vow. Hoping to recapture the moment, they repeat the jump again and again.

Tickets are $15 and may be arranged through SmartTix at www.smarttix.com.
