Photo Flash: First Look at Route 66 Theatre's 'A FUNNY THING... NEW YORK CITY'

Route 66 Theatre Company will conclude its ninth season with the Chicago premiere of Halley Feiffer's dark comedy A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE GYNECOLOGIC ONCOLOGY UNIT AT SLOAN-KETTERING MEMORIAL CANCER CENTER OF NEW YORK CITY, directed by Keira Fromm, playing now through September 23, 2017 at The Den Theatre's new Bookspan Theatre, 1333 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago. The press opening is tonight, August 29, and BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

A FUNNY THING... features Judy Lea Steele, Meg Thalken, Stef Tovar and Mary Williamson.

A foul-mouthed twenty-something comedienne and a middle-aged man embroiled in a nasty divorce are brought together unexpectedly when their cancer-stricken mothers become roommates in the hospital. Together, this unlikely duo must negotiate some of life's biggest challenges... while making some of the world's most inappropriate jokes. Can these two very lost people learn to laugh through their pain and lean on each other when all they really want to do is run away?

The production team team for FUNNY THING... includes: Courtney O'Neill (scenic design), Mieka Van der Ploeg (costume design), Claire Margaret Chrzan (lighting design), Christopher Kriz (sound design), Amanda Hermann (properties design), Sasha Smith (intimacy choreographer), Catherine Allen (production manager), Helen Lattyak (stage manager) and Matthew Bonaccorso (asst. stage manager).

Tickets are currently available at route66theatre.org.
