Single And Proud, a short comedy about the dating scene by Frederick Stroppel, returns to NYC on the most appropriate day of the year: St. Valentine's Day, Feb. 14. The show had a month's run at 29th Street Repertory back in October 1996, and was originally a segment of the company's 6th Annual Summer One Act Festival in 1995. Now it's at the Java Shop (49th St. & Broadway) for a 3-4 month run (and possibly longer).
Only 40 minutes long, the play is followed by a cocktail hour of mingling and matchmaking.
Once again, Single And Proud stars Elizabeth Elkins (whose EE Productions is producing the show) as the neurotic hostess of a singles seminar. Also in the cast are Lois Raebeck, Courtney Penzimer and newcomer Jonathan Powers.
Stroppel's relationship comedy, Fortune's Fools, had a commercial Off-Broadway run in 1995-96.
