What happens when a prime time CBS sitcom star, a New York Times Magazine humor writer and a Broadway musical director hook up with a raggedy drag queen, a couple of alternative comics and a renegade director? The effect is extraordinary.
The TWEED Fractured Classicks Series takes on the 80’s with a fully staged reading of the classic Robert Redford film about an upper middle class mid-western family’s struggle to come to terms with the accidental drowning of their prize son. The stone cold mother, the whipped dad, the messed up son, the suicidal girlfriend, the annoying shrink…and that swim coach! They’re all there. You be, too.
Directed by TWEED’s Kevin Malony and featuring:
* Julie Halston - Star of CBS’s “The Class”
* John Glaser – Late Night Television
* Seth Rudetsky – Emmy nominated writer and star on Broadway
* Jon Daly - Upright Citizens Brigade
