 The House of Blue Leaves

  By John Guare

This smart and outrageous black comedy follows the strangest day in the life of a New York zookeeper with big dreams! Artie Shaughnessy has aspirations of being a famous songwriter, but what his downstairs mistress, Bunny, won’t tell him, and his wife, Bananas (who is indeed bananas), tries to impart, is that Artie’s songs stink. But today, Oct. 4th 1964, is different because the Pope is coming to town and miracles are in the air and anything is possible – or so they all think. “An enchantingly zany and original farce!” –NY Times


A champagne reception will follow the show in the lobby of the theater, after the crowd clears out. Your name tag shows you belong in this special festivity. The cast are invited to join us for our champagne toast to their performance. You may not recognize them out of character — their name tags, identifying the role they played and who they really are, will help.

Phyllis Gresham, champion of this event, has alerted Twisted Vine Bistro (twistedvinebistro.com) to expect a group of us before 5:00 PM, after the reception. We will order from the menu, whatever strikes your fancy, drinks and snacks or entrée for an early bird supper. We need a head count so let us know. If you decide later or change your mind you can reach Phyllis at 239-472-4031, or millflower@aol.com.
