Kelsey Theatre Presents "Scenery"

Kelsey Theatre Presents "Scenery"

(WEST WINDSOR, NJ) -- Maurer Productions OnStage presents the backstage comedy “Scenery,” weekends February 4 through February 13, 2022 at the Kelsey TheatreEd Dixon’s crisply-paced theatrical romp about two famous New York veteran actors hilariously explores the definitions of art, marriage and partnership.

Marion Crain and Richard Crain who have been married for twenty years -- and are facing the dramatic decline of their careers -- prepare for opening night at the Belasco Theater. “Scenery” offers a glimpse behind the curtain as the pair spar and banter before, during and after the show — revealing a behind-the-scenes backstage drama all of its own.

The cast features Laurie Hardy of Hamilton as Marion Crain and Thom Carroll of Raritan as Richard Crain.

The show is directed by Judi Parrish and produced by John and Diana Maurer. Other members of the production team are Stage Manager Jennifer Boutros, Costume Designer Ruth Schanbacher, Master Carpenter Jeff Cantor, Sound Engineer Evan Paine, and Prop Master Jill Katz.

The Chicago Tribune called the premiere of “Scenery” “a deliciously caustic new two-character comedy” and WGVU public media wrote: “After this, you’ll always wonder what goes on backstage and what the real lives of those actors are like when the curtain falls.”
