MILFORD - You’re never too old to fall head over heels in love – or lust. That’s the theme of the play, “Bermuda Avenue Triangle,” produced for the Milford Theatre by Tonylou Productions.
The outrageous romantic comedy is set for Friday, Aug. 25, and Saturday, Aug. 26, at 8 p.m., and Sunday, Aug. 27, at 3 p.m., at the theatre, located at 114 E. Catherine St., Milford.
Jewish Fanny and Italian Tess are two chronically unhappy widows whose well-meaning daughters move them from New York City to a retirement village in Las Vegas. On an excursion, the widows meet Johnny, a drunken gambler who’s short on cash but long on charm. The ladies allow him to sleep it off on their living room floor, and he manages to sweet talk his way into both their beds. When they realize they’re sharing him, sparks fly!
In spite of his personal failings, gigolo Johnny gives Tess and Fanny a new lease on life. This Broadway-performed, over-the-top comedy was written by Renee Taylor and Joseph Bologna, authors of “Lovers and Others Strangers.”
The play stars Tony Schwartz as Johnny Paolucci, Veronica Deisler as Fanny Saperstein, Marylou Ambrose as Tess La Ruffa, Randy Hennig as Rabbi Jeffrey Levine, Kerry Brazen as Rita Gangi, and Kelly Ann Walsh as Angela Bruno.
