On June 18, Robert Nicotra & John Dapolito presented Let's Kill Grandma This Christmas- A Contagious Laughter Production, at Manhattan Theatre Club Studios. The new comedy by Brian Gianci featured casting by Judy Bowman, and is aiming for an Off-Broadway run this winter.

The cast included Dean Winters, Audrie Neenan, Adam Mucci, Amy RutbergKimberly Quinn and James Wirt. Check out photos from the reading below!

Writer Brian Gianci writes of the show: 'I started writing, "Let's Kill Grandma This Christmas" three years ago in response to an interesting story a friend of mine (who is in his mid-thirties) told me. He had gone on an overnight trip upstate with a couple of friends. They were all going to spend the night at one of the friends' grandmothers' house to celebrate her birthday and enjoy a few drinks – and perhaps smoke some illegal (in most states) plants. My friend said that the grandmother was a very free spirited woman with "young eyes". And apparently these “young eyes” held some kind of secret. He said that by the end of the night, all of his friends had gone to sleep and he and the grandmother stayed up into the wee hours talking. It was very clear, he told me, that he and this woman had a deep spiritual connection. What was confusing however was that he also felt a strong physical attraction to her, and she was more than twice his age.'
