Equinox Theatre Company Presents A NIGHT AT FAWLTY TOWERS, Opening 5/24

Equinox Theatre Company continues their cult season with the regional premier of the hysterical comedy "A Night at Fawlty Towers." May 24 through June 15. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM. With a pay-what-you-can Industry Night on Monday, June 3. Tickets are $20 in advance or $22 at the door and are available online at www.EquinoxTheatreDenver.com. Performances will be at The Bug Theatre - 3654 Navajo Street in Denver.

Join Equinox for a night at the best-loved bad hotel in the world. Written by John Cleese and Connie Booth, Fawlty Towersis a madcap, fast-paced farce that will keep you rolling in the aisles with laughter. Meet the snobbish, manic Basil; his over-coiffured domineering wife, Sybil; the hopeless but ever-hopeful waiter Manuel; the calm and capable Polly - and of course the steady stream of abused guests. Enjoy four episodes from the classic British Television Comedy that perfectly demonstrates the classic John Cleese-style of humor and mixes it with plenty of slapstick comedy fun. It's a night at the Inn that you will never forget.

The talented cast includes Matt Maxwell as Basil Fawlty, Linnea Lewis as Sybil Fawlty, Natasha Gleichmann as Polly, Mark Shonsey as Manuel, Clint Heyn as Major Gowen, Logan Bretweiser as Terry, and Melissa Pear and Val Purser as Mrs. Tibbs and Mrs. Gatsby. The rest of the ensemble includes Chip Winn Wells, Stanley Ross, Andrew Hunter, Anita Harkess, Carole Maschka, Loren Cogswell, Arthur Pierce, Debra Szuster and Amy Stuemky.

Fawlty Towers was ranked Britain's Greatest TV Show of the 20th Century by the British Film Institute in 2000, despite the fact that only 12 episodes were ever made.

Fawlty Towers was inspired by a rude hotel proprietor John Cleese encountered whilst away filming with the Monty Python team.
