Last Chance to catch Richard Greenberg's latest comedy, Hurrah at Last, which ends its extended Off-Broadway run Aug. 22. The Roundabout Theatre production has been playing at the Gramercy Theatre. Hurrah began previews May 13 and officially opened June 3.
Reg Rogers took over the lead role in the show July 27. (Peter Frechette, the show's original lead, left to return to the television series, "The Profiler," where Frechette is a regular.)
Rogers is probably best known to theatregoers for his roles in Holiday with Laura Linney and in Neil Simon's short-lived play, Proposals. Sharing the stage with Rogers are Judith Blazer (Titanic), Ileen Getz, Dori Brenner, Larry Keith, Kevin O'Rourke and Paul Michael Valley.
Hurrah at Last is set on Christmas Eve in a posh Manhattan loft and has been described as a play that "demonstrates how we manage to avoid homicides with our families over a holiday period." Hurrah premiered in May 1998 at CA's South Coast Rep.
New York-based Greenberg, is the author of numerous plays including Eastern Standard, Night and Her Stars, and Three Days of Rain -- which also had its world premiere (in 1997) at South Coast Rep and went on to an acclaimed run at the Manhattan Theatre Club.
