NJ Rep Presents "Halftime With Don"

NJ Rep Presents "Halftime With Don"(LONG BRANCH, NJ) -- New Jersey Repertory Company presents the National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere of Halftime with Don by Ken Weitzman, directed by Kent Nicholson, June 22 – July 30, 2017. Don Devers may not have been the biggest name in the NFL, but his heart and his charisma were unrivaled on the field.

Known for helping every opponent he knocked down get back onto their feet, Don has been brought to his knees by the cruel legacy of his high-impact heyday. Ed Ryan, a demoralized fan who’s idolized Don all his life, arrives at his door searching for inspiration. Instead Ed finds his hero shut off from the world, attempting to stave off the encroaching offensive of traumatic brain damage with Pringles, pills and Post-It notes.  Stephanie, Don’s pregnant, tough-as-nails daughter, is sure she knows why he refuses to see even her. But she’s wrong. What she discovers, what they all discover through the mirror of Don’s decline, is an unpredictable, remarkable perspective on hope and strength in the clinch of being merely human.

Joining us as Don is Malachy Cleary, NJ Rep regular Susan Maris plays Sarah Ryan and newcomers Lori Vega and Dan McVey play Stephanie Devers and Ed Ryan. Previews kick-off Thursday, June 22, with a complimentary game-day buffet of chili, chips and beer following the performance. Opening night with reception is Saturday, June 24. Performances are Thursdays and Fridays at 8:00pm; Saturdays at 3:00pm and 8:00pm; and Sundays at 2:00pm. Tickets are $46 and are available at 732-229-3166 or online at njrep.org.

New Jersey Repertory Company is located at 179 Broadway in Long Branch.
