Photo Coverage: Nancy Opel & CURVY WIDOW Company Prepare for Off Broadway!

Curvy Widow, a new musical comedy with a book by Bobby Goldman, music and lyrics by Drew Brody (Broadway: Oh Hello; Cutman), and directed by Peter Flynn (Rhapsody in Seth; Two Rooms), will play at the Westside Theatre (407 West 43rd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues). Performances for the open-ended engagement begin July 20 and opening night is set for August 3.

Starring Tony Award nominee Nancy Opel (Broadway: Honeymoon In Vegas, Urinetown; The Toxic Avenger) as Curvy Widow, this sassy, frank and witty new musical comedy takes us through the semi-autobiographical adventures of a gutsy, recently widowed 50-something woman as she immerses herself in the modern dating scene. From exploring internet personal ads and surviving hilarious first dates, to weighing the pros and cons of married vs unmarried men, this widow romps her way through it all with humor and perseverance, and discovers unexpected truths about love, life and sex. Featuring a brilliant cast of best friends, a dead husband, and a myriad of potential suitors - Curvy learns the hard way what it means to start life over in the modern age.

Joining Opel in Curvy Widow will be Andrea Bianchi (TV's As The World Turns), Aisha de Haas (Broadway: Rent; Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk), Elizabeth Ward Land(Broadway: The Scarlet Pimpernel, Memphis), Ken Land (Broadway: The Scarlet Pimpernel; Promises, Promises), Alan Muraoka (TV's Sesame Street, Broadway: Miss Saigon) and Christopher Shyer (Broadway: Mamma Mia!, National Tour: The Book of Mormon).
