Neil Simon's Rumors

Location:

Community-Wide

Event Type(s): Arts / Theatre / Music
Organization: Play On! A New Virginia Theatre
Description:  

Play On! The Theatre at IX brings Neil Simon's Classic, "Rumors" to Charlottesville

"Play On! Does Not Appear to be Slowing Down with the Production of Quality Shows"

Play On! has been on a roll producing stage plays throughout its third season with no sign of slowing down.  Their upcoming production, "Rumors" a Neil Simon creation, is scheduled to hit the stage February 26 - March 8 at the Theatre at IX (IX Building - Downtown).  Neil Simon, is known world-wide for one of television's most legendary shows, "The Odd Couple".  One of Simon's biggest fans, director, Paul Stenard, had previously directed "The Odd Couple" on stage and jumped to seize the opportunity to direct "Rumors".  Stenard states, "Laughter is such a precious commodity in our world today and if you want to laugh and laugh and laugh, then come to see Rumors."

This Neil Simon gem, first staged in 1988, is set in the tastefully renovated New York home of Charley and Myra Brockwho we never see. The Brocks are throwing a 10th anniversary party for themselves and have invited four couples that are their closest friends. When the first couple arrives, they find Charley in an upstairs bedroom, bleeding from a gunshot wound to the ear lobe, and Myra is nowhere to be found. Couple #1 conspires to conceal this mystery from the other couples, unsuccessfully, and with the arrival of each couple, the hilarity and nonsense escalate, until the local police arrive to try, in vain, to sort it all out.  

 The cast includes Phil Horst, Sid Wood, Linn Wood, Megan Randall, Jane Scatena, Michelle Majorin, Marty Moore, Tom Graham, Bill Brown and Bill Smith.

 Do not allow this production to come and go before getting over to the Theatre at IX to see Play On! in action with Rumors.  This is community theatre at its best, so come one come all.  Local architect, Kerry Moran has designed an immaculate set.  We encourage you to come out to support local theatre as well as experience the creation of one of America's most prolific modern day playwrights.
