Day Trippers Dinner Theatre
When longtime friends Tess and Fannie are shunted off to a Las Vegas condo by their respective daughters Angela and Rita, they both feel that their lives, which weren’t that great to begin with, have become really terrible. Things get even more depressing when their first visitor is a welcome-wagon rabbi. But the arrival of Johnny, a kind of senior stallion, lifts the two ladies’ spirits. From a simple, straightforward premise, Tess and Fannie have created comedy magic. The two women – one Italian and one Jewish – are lovingly drawn, familiar but never clinched. And the gigolo Johnny, brought to life with great soul and warmth, is a priceless character. While the play itself doesn’t aspire to profundity, it does touch on the essential humanity of its characters as they try to sort out love, friendship and parenthood late in life.
This is a touching comedy of senior love and lust. It has gallons of laughs, as well as sizzling performances. If you love to laugh, Bermuda Avenue Triangle is a must see.
Day Trippers Dinner Theatre is a small local theatre run with BIG productions. Their cast and staff are some of the best in the performance industry. A delicious lunch will be served at the theatre prior to the performance.
