Enter Laughing extends its run by two weeks and will now play through to 12 Oct
The York Theatre Company have announced that its production of Enter Laughing, score by Stan Daniels and libretto by Joseph Stein, based on his play (and the movie by Stein and Reiner), will extend its run by two weeks.
The musical opened at the Theatre at Saint Peter's on 10 Sep 2008, following previews from 3 Sep, for a limited run that was originally to end on 12 Oct 2008, but will now play through to 26 Oct 2008.
Enter Laughing is set in 1930ï¿½s New York City, where nothing will keep aspriring actor David Kolowitz from his dreams of Broadway stardomï¿½not his overly protective parents, not his demanding girlfriends and certainly not his severe lack of talent!
Directed by Stuart Ross, Enter Laughing features Josh Grisetti (David Kolowitz), Jill Eikenberry (Mother), Michael Tucker (Father), Paul Binotto (Don), Ray DeMattis (Foreman), Erick Devine (Pike), Betsy DiLellio, Janine LaManna (Angela), Gerry McIntyre (Don), Robb Sapp (Marvin), Emily Shoolin (Wanda), Allison Spratt (Miss B), George S. Irving (Marlowe) and Matt Castle (Roger).
The creative team features James Morgan (sets), David Toser (costumes) and Chris Robinson (lighting).
Enter Laughing played on Broadway in 1976 as 'So Long 174th Street,' starring Robert Morse.
Joseph Stein won the Tony Award and the Drama Critics Circle Award for best musical for 'Fiddler on the Roof.' His other musicals include 'Zorba' (Tony nomination, Drama Critics Circle Award), 'The Bakers Wife' (Olivier Award), 'Rags' (Tony nomination), 'Irene,' 'Juno,' 'Take Me Along,' 'The King of Hearts,' and 'So Long, 174th Street.'
Stan Daniels won eight Emmys during his long television career, including three as co-creator and executive producer of 'Taxi' and three as a writer on 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show.' He also wrote for 'The Dean Martin Show,' 'The Bill Cosby Show' and 'Phyllis.'
