From America’s master of Contemporary Broadway Comedy,Neil Simon, here is another revealing comedy behind the scenes in the entertainment world, this time near the heart of the theatre district. 45 Seconds from Broadway takes place in the legendary “Polish Tea Room” on New York’s 47th Street. Here Broadway theatre personalities washed-up and on-the-rise, gather to schmooz even as they lose. This touching valentine to New York offers great acting roles as Neil Simon continues his exploration of the foibles and funny in the human comedy.
Auditions at Slidell Little Theatre on January 21st at 7 p.m. Auditions will be a cold read. Those auditioning for Mickey need to tell a joke. The Show will run March 9 – 25th.
