Joe Brancato directs Erasmus Fenn's new comedy, which began previews July 15 at the Theatre at St. Clements.

Quinton is joined onstage by Jason Cruz, Jason Edward Cook and Michael Keyloun.

Drop Dead Perfect, according to press notes, "follows Idris Seabright, played by Quinton, a wealthy, eccentric mistress of a Key West cottage that runs her estate with a zany flair. When her beloved ward Vivien decides to abandon the Florida Keys to pursue art in Greenwich Village, and Idris’ lawyer becomes alarmingly interested in her investments, Idris’ life begins its outrageous downward spiral. After she receives a visit from a mysterious stranger who bears an undeniable resemblance to her long-lost love, her life erupts into over-the-top comic mayhem."

Sets are by James J. Fenton, with lighting by Ed McCarthy, costumes by Charlotte Palmer-Lane and sound by William Neal.

The play is produced in association with Morton Wolkowitz.

Performances continue through Aug. 10 with shows Wednesday-Saturday at 8 PM and matinees Saturday and Sunday at 3 PM.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased by calling (845) 786-2873 or by visiting
