PODCAST: "The Honeymooners" at Paper Mill Playhouse

We recently spoke with Tony Award-winning director John Rando about the new musical comedy “The Honeymooners” – based on the classic television series – which recently had its world premiere at Paper Mill Playhouse. The common ancestor of many, if not most, television sit-coms, “The Honeymooners” told the stories of married, working-class Brooklynites Ralph and Alice Kramden, their best friends Ed and Trixie Norton and people from the neighborhood around their apartment building.

The influence of “The Honeymooners” can’t really be overstated, and can be seen in shows like “The Flintstones,” “All In The Family,” “The Simpsons,” “Roseanne” and “The Big Bang Theory” – and, just last year, CBS announced that it was rebooting “The Honeymooners” series for a new generation. Seven years in the making, “The Honeymooners” musical is kicking off Paper Mill’s new season and generating a lot of buzz.

Bergen County Players presents "You Make My Frame Shake!" by Luigi Jannuzzi

(ORADELL, NJ) -- Bergen County Players (BCP) concludes its 2023-2024 second stage season with a limited run of New Jersey Playwright Luigi Jannuzzi's comedy You Make My Frame Shake! from May 31 through June 2, 2024. Multiple romances come to life at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art in this play, a fast-paced series of comedic love plays and monologues in which statues, paintings, and fertility gods emerge from their molds and frames. Mix in some famous artists, guards, curators, and one love-seeking tour guide on one special night and you have this comedic hit. In fact, even the artwork speaks to the audience!
