Arsenic and Old Lace completes run at Waterfront Playhouse!
The Award-winning Waterfront Playhouse on Mallory Square current comedy classic Arsenic and Old Lace will complete its run this week. Performances are at 8pm Tuesday through Saturday, May 23 through 27. For tickets call 305-294-5015 or visit www.waterfrontplayhouse.org.
Arsenic and Old Lace is a classic black comedy about the only thing more deadly than poison: family. Drama critic Mortimer Brewster’s engagement announcement is upended when he discovers a corpse in his elderly aunts’ window seat. Between his aunts’ penchant for wine, a brother who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, and another brother using plastic surgery to hide from the police—not to mention Mortimer’s own hesitancy about marriage—it’ll be a miracle if Mortimer makes it to his wedding.
The Waterfront Playhouse company, directed by Artistic Director Tom Thayer and designed by Michael Boyer includes some of Key Wests favorite performers: Gerri Louise Gates and Peggy Montgomery, Mathias Maloff and Carolyn Cooper. Steve Miller, John DeMicco, Zachary Franchini, Richard Titus, Karl Stahl, Ray West, Wayne Dapser, Donna Stabile, and John Swann.[livemarket market_name="KONK Life LiveMarket" limit=3 category=“” show_signup=0 show_more=0]
