PRLog - Jan. 24, 2012 - ST. LOUIS -- ST. LOUIS: Max & Louie Productions will feature two plays in its 2012 season, the St. Louis premiere of The New Century by Paul Rudnick and The Violet Hour by Richard Greenberg, both being staged at COCA’s intimate Black Box Theatre (524 Trinity Avenue, University City, MO 63130).
The New Century will be directed by Ted Gregory, and stars Peggy Billo, Alan Knoll, Joshua Nash Payne, Laura Sexauer and Stellie Siteman. The show runs May 10th through May 20th, tickets now on sale at www.maxandlouie.com or at COCA Box Office at 314-725-6555.
This provocative and outrageous comedy features a collection of hilarious characters, including a Long Island Jewish mother, the self-proclaimed “Most loving Mother of all time”, who belongs to a support group for Parents of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, the Transgendered, the Questioning, the Curious, the Creatively Concerned, and Others; a flamboyant, colorful, late-night Florida cable show host, hounded out of New York by the New Gay Order, who has never fallen out of love with the idea of being gay in its Cinema-size, Technicolor sense; and a craft-crazy Midwestern woman whose wacky projects, including crocheting evening gowns for cats and competitive cake decorating, distract her thoughts from the son she lost to AIDS. All these poignant and hilarious people collide under surprising and comical circumstances, providing evidence of just where our new century might be heading.
The second play in the 2012 season will be The Violet Hour by Richard Greenberg, directed by Sydnie Grosberg Ronga. Performances will take place August 23rd through September 2nd at COCA. For more information please visit www.maxandlouie.com.
