Melanie Griffith Joins Cast of Scott Caan's NO WAY AROUND BUT THROUGH World Premiere Tonight, 6/3
Falcon Theatre and The Mineral Theater Company previously announced that Melanie Griffith has joined the cast of the world premiere play No Way Around But Through written by Scott Caan and directed by Val Lauren. Academy Award-Nominated actress Melanie Griffith will portray the role of 'Lulu', the mother to 'Jacob', played by Scott Caan. Ms. Griffith's credits include the 1988 film Working Girl (Academy Award Nominee as Best Actress and Golden Globe Award Winner as Best Actress in a Comedy), the Academy Award Nominated film Nobody's Fool, Another Day in Paradise, Woody Allen's Celebrity, and RKO 281, in which she played actress Marion Davies, a part that garnered her Golden Globe and Emmy nominations.
No Way Around But Through premieres at the Falcon Theatre today, June 3. The play follows Jacob (Scott Caan) as he discovers that his girlfriend Holly (Robyn Cohen) might be pregnant. He drags his friend Frank (Val Lauren) into the maddening wormhole that is his psyche, a venture that lands them on the doorstep of Lulu (Melanie Griffith): Jacob's mother and the matriarch of madness herself. However, Holly and her friend Rachel (Bre Blair) are one step ahead of them. No Way Around But Through is a dark, thoughtful and quirky romantic comedy about facing the inevitable dysfunctions of life and love head-on, and a reminder to never let where you've been get in the way of where you're going.
