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!
