Inventing Avi Aviv, according to press notes, is a "zany comedy of theatrical manners [that] grapples with questions of authorship and identity as two sisters of a certain age — one a rich producer (Halston), the other, a diva stage actress (Shaw) — collaborate on a hit play from a sexy Israeli writer (Setlock). The play seems autobiographical, but the story's actually stolen - from a place closer to home than the sisters could ever guess."
The Dorothy Strelsin Theatre is located on the first floor of 312 West 36th Street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues. For reservations visit www.smarttix.com and search for Inventing Avi Aviv.
