M&M Productions Acting Company, Inc. presents Neil Simon's Jake's Women, a wildly funny foray into modern relationships that blurs the line between fiction and reality, on Saturday, October 9, at 2 p.m., in Greenwich Library's Cole Auditorium.
Jake is a novelist who is seemingly more successful at imagining the women in his life then at dealing with them in person. Faced with a faltering marriage, Jake retreats inside his mind to seek advice from fantasy versions of the women in his life: independent wife, Maggie; bossy and boisterous sister, Karen; precocious daughter, Molly; cranky and opinionated psychiatrist, Edith; and his impulsively impetuous first wife, Julie. In exchange, he's often dealt hilarious insults, mockery and taunts that help him make his way back to real life.
This production of Jake's Women brings together an amazing cast of M&M veterans. The play is directed by and features Larry Schneider, who has been seen in previous M&M productions of Rabbit Hole, Doubt, and Proof. (He also directed Rabbit Hole, Three Tall Women, and Fiction for M&M.) The women in Jake's life are played by Jean Kadela (Chapter Two, The Good Doctor, The Lincoln Continental), Karen Symington Muendell (Five Women Wearing the Same Dress, Moonlight & Magnolias, The Art of Murder), Cathy Romanovitch (Rabbit Hole), Carly Lichtenstein (Fiction, Rabbit Hole) and immensely talented newcomer to M&M, Amanda B. Goodman (Camelot, The King and I, Agnes of God, The Sound of Music). No tickets required.
