News   PHOTO CALL: Holm and Abbott's Three Men on a Horse Opens Off-Broadway
 
Three Men on a Horse, John Cecil Holm and George Abbott's 1935 comedy about gamblers who take advantage of a greeting-card writer with a knack for picking winning ponies, opened March 24 in an Off-Broadway revival by TACT/The Actors Company Theatre. Previews began March 14.

The comedy plays to April 16 at the Beckett Theatre in the Theatre Row complex. The production, directed by TACT co-artistic director Scott Alan Evans (Incident at Vichy, The Cocktail Party), features TACT company members Jeffrey C. Hawkins, Ron McClary, James Murtaugh, Gregory Salata and Scott Schafer, as well as guest artists Becky Baumwoll, Don Burroughs, Geoffrey Molloy, Julianna Zinkel and Kristen Vaphides.

Here is a look at the opening night:



Here's how TACT — the Equity troupe dedicated to presenting "neglected or rarely produced plays of literary merit" — bills the play: "In Three Men on a Horse, hen-pecked greeting-card writer Erwin Trowbridge [Geoffrey Molloy] has an uncanny ability for predicting the winners of horse races. For Erwin it's just a hobby, but when his extraordinary talent is discovered by a down-and-out pack of gamblers, Erwin suddenly finds himself very far from his safe suburban home in Ozone Heights. This dizzy and delightful Depression-era comedy by one of theatre's most accomplished showmen will bring a much needed lift to your Recession-wearied spirits."

Three Men on a Horse has the following performance schedule: Monday, Wednesday-Friday at 7:30 PM; Saturday at 2 PM & 8 PM; Sunday at 3 PM.

Theatre Row's Beckett Theatre is located at 410 W. 42nd Street between 9th & 10th Avenues.

Tickets are $36.25-$56.25 and are available 24/7 through Telecharge.com and (212) 239-6200 or at the Theatre Row box office between noon and 8 PM daily.
