Guild Hall will present Tony and Emmy Award winner Blythe Danner and Simon Jones in Tonight at 8:30: An Evening of Three Light and Musical Comedies beginning July 17 in East Hampton.



Tony winner Tony Walton will direct the Noel Coward one-acts, which will also feature Edward Hibbert along with Andrew Botsford, Gerard Doyle, Delphi Harrington, Tina Jones, James Lawson, Kate Mueth and Bobby Peterson.

Show times are Tuesdays-Sundays at 8:30 PM through Aug. 3 with an additional performance Aug. 4 at 2 PM.

Tonight at 8:30 was written as a series of ten-one acts by Coward as "acting, singing, and dancing vehicles for Gertrude Lawrence and myself." The plays are typically performed in any combination of three. Hands Across the Sea, Family Album and Red Peppers are attributed to be the most popular in the script and will be performed at Guild Hall.

The John Drew Theater in the Dina Merrill Pavilion at Guild Hall is located at 158 Main Street, East Hampton, NY. For tickets call (631) 324-0806 or visit GuildHall.org.
