Annette O'Toole Stars in THE SHOW-OFF, Opening Tonight Off-Broadway
The Peccadillo Theater Company, the OBIE, Lucille Lortel and Drama Desk Award-winning company dedicated to the rediscovery of classic American theater, presents a revival of The Show-Off by Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatist George Kelly, starring Lucille Lortel Award-winner Annette O'Toole (Southern Comfort, Man from Nebraska, "Smallville," "Halt and Catch Fire"). BroadwayWorld has a look at O'Toole and company in action below!
Directed by Peccadillo's artistic director, Dan Wackerman, The Show-Off is now performing Off-Broadway at Theatre at St. Clement's (423 West 46 Street, btw. Ninth & Tenth Aves). Opening Night is tonight, September 28, 2017 at 7 PM. The limited engagement runs Saturday, October 21st.
Notable for its masterly blending of comedy and drama and meticulous attention to the ordinary details of everyday life, The Show-Off revolves around a working class Irish family in North Philadelphia in the mid-1920s. Mr. and Mrs. Fisher and their three adult children are thrown into a state of turmoil when Amy, their middle child, brings home a preposterous suitor named Aubrey Piper. A compulsive liar with delusions of grandeur, Aubrey meets his match in Mrs. Fisher, the crusty, no-nonsense matriarch of the family. A battle of wits ensues and the outcome is a vindication (of sorts!) of the American con man.
