16 May 2012
Theresa Rebeck's new dark comedy What We're Up Against, about a female architect who hits the workplace glass ceiling, officially opens May 16 at the Alley Theatre in Houston, TX, after previews that began May 11.
Scott Schwartz (Golda's Balcony, Mauritius) stages the production that will run through June 10 on the Neuhaus Stage.
The cast includes Chris Hutchison (Proof), Nancy Lemenager (Chicago, Movin' Out), David Andrew Macdonald (An Inspector Calls, The Green Heart), Julia Motyka (Obama 44, My Antonia) and David Rainey (Amadeus).
The production has scenic and lighting design by Kevin Rigdon, costume design by Alejo Vietti and sound design by Josh Schmidt.
What We're Up Against is presented as part of the Alley's New Play Initiative Program.
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?"
