For our first production of our long-anticipated re-opening, Playwright, master of comedy and award-winner Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Fox on the Fairway) brings us a romantic comedy — a love story set during WWII about a young soldier courting his sweetheart — a young actress on Broadway. What starts with long distance letter writing ends in a “sweep you off your feet” meeting in Times Square. This funny, touching, patriotic and uplifting story, based on the playwright’s parents, is just the “Welcome Home to George Street Playhouse” that we all need! Come fall in love with live theatre all over again.
Playing the titular Jack Ludwig is Bill Army, who appeared on Broadway in the original company of The Band’s Visit (Tony Award for Best Musical, Grammy Award). Other productions include Act One at Lincoln Center, Relatively Speaking on Broadway opposite Marlo Thomas. All's Well That Ends Well and Measure for Measure at the Delacorte and The Changeling at Red Bull Theater. His film and television credits include Deadbeat (Hulu) and COHAB (YouTube).
Amelia Pedlow plays Louise Rabiner. Her Off Broadway and regional work includes the World Premiere of Dear Jack, Dear Louise at Arena Stage, Intelligence (NYTW Next Door Series), The Metromaniacs, and Tis Pity She's a Whore at Red Bull Theater. Other credits include Playing with Fire at The Guthrie, Red Velvet at the Old Globe, Ether Dome at La Jolla Playhouse, Hartford Stage and The Huntington.
