Photo Flash: First Look at Cortland Rep's MAKING GOD LAUGH, Opening Tonight

August 13
5:50 PM 2014

Cortland Repertory Theatre, one of New York State's longest running professional summer theatres, presents the regional premiere of MAKING GOD LAUGH by Sean Grennan. The show opens tonight, August 13, and continues through the 23rd. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Family holiday celebrations have never been this funny -- or this true to life! Join Ruthie and Bill, a couple of "empty nest" parents, as they host their three adult children - a former football star, an aspiring actress and a devout priest -- over the course of 30 years of family holiday celebrations. As they gather for Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year's and Easter, their lives experience unexpected twists and turns and their plans careen more off-center. This clever play is a heartwarming spin on Woody Allen's joke, "If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans!"

Individual tickets for all of CRT's summer shows are available by calling 800-427-6160, or for more information, visit www.cortlandrep.org.
