Photo Flash: First Look at JEEVES TAKES A BOW Opens at First Folio Theatre
British upper crust meets the New York mob in the witty new play JEEVES TAKES A BOW. Everyone's favorite hapless hero, Bertie Wooster, embarks on an American adventure armed only with his handsome fortune, his talent for trouble, and his remarkable manservant, Jeeves. In less than a New York minute, Bertie finds himself knee-deep in troubles with vengeful gangsters, chorus girls, and a new Broadway musical.
The cast also features Lydia Berger Gray (Yellow Face at Silk Road Theatre Project) as "Vivienne Duckworth;" Kevin McKillip (The Merchant of Venice, The Turn of the Screw and Unnecessary Farce at First Folio Theatre, Making God Laugh at Theatre at the Center) as "Binky Binkersteth;" David Rice (Boolie in Driving Miss Daisy and Snug in A Midsummer Night's Dream at First Folio Theatre) as "Knuckles McCann;" and Jennifer Shine (My Fair Lady at Paramount Theatre) as "Ruby LeRoy."
