The 6 PM event, which will also include Sundance Institute Theatre Program artistic director Philip Himberg and producing director Christopher Hibma, will precede an 8 PM performance of A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder. The musical was developed at the Sundance Theatre Lab.
Based on the 1907 novel "Israel Rank" by Roy Horniman, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder opened on Broadway Nov. 17 at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Critics praised the musical that has a book by Freedman, music by Lutvak and lyrics by Freedman and Lutvak. Darko Tresnjak directs, and Peggy Hickey choreographs. It stars Tony Award winner Jefferson Mays.
Dinner with the Boys is the deliciously hilarious new comedy starring Dan Lauria (“The Wonder Years”, Lombardi), Ray Abruzzo (“The Sopranos”) and Richard Zavaglia (“Donnie Brasco”). When two wise guys from the old neighborhood, Charlie (Lauria) and Dom (Zavaglia), find themselves at odds with the family, they must serve up perfectly seasoned performances with their puttanesca to escape danger. This odd couple awaits their fate as they prepare dinner for their special guests. It’s an evening filled with belly laughs, killer plot twists and plenty of garlic. The only question remaining is “will this dinner be their last meal?"
