Handle With Care, a new play by Emmy Award nominee Jason Odell Williams that stars Tony Award nominee Carol Lawrence, concludes its run at the Westside Theatre Downstairs March 9. 

The production officially opened Dec. 15, 2013, following previews that began Dec. 3. 

Along with Lawrence (West Side Story, Kiss of the Spider Woman), the cast includes Sheffield Chastain (White Christmas, Is He Dead?), Charlotte Cohn (Coram Boy, La Boheme) and Jonathan Sale (The Shape of Things, Soldier's Play). Karen Carpenter (Love, Loss and What I Wore) directed. 

"Handle With Care tells the story of a young Israeli woman who reluctantly travels with her grandmother to America," press notes state. "Fate and hilarious circumstances bring together the young woman, who has little command of English, and a young American man with little command of romance. Is their inevitable love an accident? Or destiny generations in the making?"



The creative team included David Arsenault (set design), Cory Pattak (lighting design), Martin T. Lopez (costume design), Wojcik|Seay (casting) and Brierpatch Productions (general management).
