HANDLE WITH CARE Plays 100th Performance Off-Broadway Tomorrow
The hit romantic comedy Handle With Care, a Critics' Pick from the New York Times, which calls it "a hilarious and heartwarming romantic comedy" that "exudes gobs of comic energy and insight", celebrates its 100th performance on Thursday, February 27th at 8PM. The play, by Emmy Award nominee Jason Odell Williams and directed by Karen Carpenter ("Love, Loss and What I Wore"), will end its run March 9th, two weeks after its originally announced end date.

Handle With Care tells the story of a young Israeli woman who reluctantly travels with her grandmother to America. Fate and hilarious circumstances bring together the young woman, who has little command of English, and a young American man with little command of romance.
Is their inevitable love an accident?
Or destiny generations in the making?

We look forward to its continued success in theatres around the world."
