(CAPE MAY, NJ) -- America’s Sexiest Couple the second play of Cape May Stage’s 2022 season, runs Tuesday to Sunday evenings from July 14 until August 14. The laugh-out-loud comedy is the work of Ken Levine, the three-time Emmy Award–winning writer who has been honored for his work on classic comedies such as “Everybody Loves Raymond,” “The Simpsons,” “Cheers,” and more. Levine brings his surefire one-liners and eye for comedic plotting to America’s Sexiest Couple, a raucous new play which Cape May Stage is honored to premiere.
Of the play, Cape May Stage’s Producing Artistic Director Roy Steinberg comments: “Romance and comedy are the main ingredients in Ken Levine’s America’s Sexiest Couple — mixed with some very current issues to create a perfect night of theater.”
America’s Sexiest Couple follows Susan and Craig, a beloved 1990s sitcom duo, who were once hailed as — you guessed it — “America’s Sexiest Couple.” When a funeral brings them together years later, their reunion stirs up a lifetime of unresolved issues, longings, and regrets. The pains of growing older, the struggle to move on from stardom, and the awkward hilarity of reliving their iconic on-screen kiss force Susan and Craig to confront their shared past. And with rumors of a reboot of their old series in the news, they must determine if they can once again become “America’s Sexiest Couple.”
Tony Award–winner Karen Ziemba and her real-life husband, actor Bill Tatum, will star in the roles of Susan and Craig, with actor and stand-up comedian Remy Germinario in a supporting role.
General Admission tickets are available for $45. The show officially opens on July 14, 2022 at 8:00pm, following a Preview Night on July 13. The show runs Tuesday to Sunday evenings until August 14.
