Whatever Gets You Through The Night, a comedy/drama written and directed by Tommy Sturges, will open at New York's Producers Club Theatre, Wednesday, Oct. 9.
The performance that night (which is the birth-date of musician John Lennon) will be a benefit for Linroc Nursing Home, Brooklyn's only AIDS patient care facility.
Night tries to answer the question, "what do an actress, an electrician, a transvestite, a writer, a businessman, a call girl, a sex addict, his ex, and her fiance have in common?"
The play's name is taken from the title of a pop hit by John Lennon (with Elton John), and the play is produced by Free As A Bird Productions, named after a song the Beatles released during their brief reunion 15 years after Lennon's assassination.
Cast-members for the show include Lilana Amador, David Belisle, Moe Bertran, Patrick Burchill, Nick Capous, Jerry Ferris, Kevin McGraw, Ted Montuori, Carolyn Roberts, Janine Squillari and George Wurzbach, who also writes and performs the play's original music.
