The Alhambra Theatre & Dining will open a brand new comedy, Weekend Comedy, and welcomes Cindy Williams to its family of guest stars.
Cindy Williams is best known for starring from 1976 to 1982 in the television situation-comedy seriesLaverne & Shirley, in the role of Shirley Feeney, and for her role as Laurie Henderson in the classic film American Graffiti.
Ms. Williams brings her considerable talents to the Alhambra for four special weeks, September 18 through October 20, 2013. Williams began her professional career by landing national commercials, which included Foster Grant sunglasses and TWA. Her first roles in television, among others, were on Room 222, Nanny and the Professor and Love, American Style. Weekend Comedy opens September 18 and runs until October 20, 2013.
In Weekend Comedy, two couples, one older and one younger have accidentally rented the same cottage for a three-day weekend. They decide to share it. The show unfolds with a comedic clash between generations.
"We could not be more excited to welcome Cindy to our Alhambra family," said Smith. "The few times I have mentioned it to audiences before a show, they have gasped. She is a wonderful person and a wonderful actor, and I know Jacksonville will welcome her as we all have. The show is fantastic and got rave reviews where it's played. It will be a great fall frolic here, too."
As he does for every show, Executive Chef DeJuan Roy has created a menu for Weekend Comedyconsistent with the show's themes. In this case, the themes play on the mountain cabin experience. The salad course will feature a choice of chopped romaine with tomato, cucumber, olives, peppers, and feta cheese herb dressing or a wild boar sausage and fire roasted peppers skewer with honey lavender dressing. The choice of entrees include, smoked beef brisket with Kansas City barbecue sauce, pasta salad primavera, or cast iron local trout with brown butter sweet potato and leeks au gratin and green beans or smothered pork chops with yellow rice and lima beans. The vegetarian entree features spinach and white cheddar quiche with quinoa salad. For dessert, a choice of mini apple tart with spiced whipped cream, deconstructed s'mores or chocolate mousse.
