The Community Theatre of Linden is happily announcing their summer comedy starting July 26th and running through August 5th. The show is Neil Simon’s intensely entertaining “RUMORS!” The laughs will start with a storyline full of complications that get even more elaborate as they are added to by spirited and creative socialites celebrating a 10th wedding anniversary without the married couple!! Where are they? Well, THAT story changes as the play goes on and as each guest creates another explanation.
Neil Simon’s clever writing in this play came to light in 1988 when the show debuted at the Broadhurt Theatre in New York City. Years later, the show is still creating laughter and fun whenever it plays. Sean Bocardo is handling the directing and making it a family affair designing the set and building it with his brother, Liam. Sean is giving the show a bit of a twist with the idea that the show is a “sitcom” with a live studio audience, cameras, screen credits, etc. The audience should have a good time with this idea, and the cast is having fun with a double-dose of Sean’s, as Shawn Carrington is Assistant Director, as well as playing a role in the show. The rest of the players are: Alissa Brown, Jason Best, Elaine Saculla, Doan Kieu, Judy Caruso Williamson, Alfredo Patino II, Esther Taylor, and Frankie Arburua III.
