George Street Playhouse EXTENDS RUN of HIT COMEDY Ken Ludwig's The Fox on the Fairway
(New Brunswick, NJ) --- George Street Playhouse is thrilled to announce they have extended the run of their hit comedy Ken Ludwig's The Fox on the Fairway. Acclaimed by both audiences and critics alike, the New Brunswick Playhouse has added the following performances: Thursday, April 21 at 8pm, Friday, April 22 at 8pm and Saturday, April 23 at 2 pm and 8pm.
In his review for The Star-Ledger, Peter Filichia called it "phenomenally funny" and writes: "…fans of slamming doors and double entendres had best run to the George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick as fast as, well, a fox on the fairway. Ludwig's Moon Over Buffalo had one run on Broadway and his Lend Me a Tenor enjoyed two. This one deserves a chance in New York because it's the best of the three." Rick Busciglio in examiner.com said: "three words describe The Fox on the Fairway -- hilarious, hilarious and hilarious." Bob Brown in the Princeton Packet described it as "…simply sheer fun and more laugh-out-loud moments than you can shake a nine-iron at."
Tickets for Ken Ludwig's The Fox on the Fairway may be purchased by calling the George Street Playhouse Box Office at 732-246-7717 or by visiting the Playhouse website: www.GSPonline.org. George Street Playhouse is located at 9 Livingston Avenue, in the heart of New Brunswick's dining and entertainment district.
Sex and water hazards collide in this madcap adventure about love and golf. With a ridiculous personal wager at stake, two arch-rival country club execs go head-to-head over their annual golf tournament. Hopes are dashed and domestic happiness threatened when the star player switches sides at the last minute -- until a hilarious chain of events leads to missing valuables retrieved, secret liaisons revealed and an unlikely golfer recruited. The production, directed by George Street Playhouse Artistic Director David Saint, features farceurs Reggie Gowland, Amy Hohn, Michael Mastro, Lisa McCormick, Peter Scolari and Mary Testa.
Under the leadership of Artistic Director David Saint, George Street Playhouse has become a nationally recognized theater, presenting an acclaimed mainstage season while providing an artistic home for established and emerging theatre artists. Founded in 1974, the Playhouse has been well represented by numerous productions both on and off-Broadway -- recent productions include the Outer Critics' Circle Best Musical Award-winner The Toxic Avenger, the Outer Critics Circle, Drama Desk and Drama League nominated production of The Spitfire Grill and the recent Broadway hit and Tony® and Pulitzer Prize winning play Proof by David Auburn, which was developed at GSP during the 1999 Next Stage Series of new plays. In addition to its mainstage season, GSP's Touring Theatre features three issue-oriented productions that are seen by more than 70,000 students annually. George Street Playhouse programming is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, and by its lead season sponsor Johnson & Johnson. Continental Airlines is the official airline of George Street Playhouse.
