Photo Flash: First Look at ENTER LAUGHING, Now Playing at The Wallis

Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts ("The Wallis") presents Enter Laughing - The Musical, featuring a book by Joseph Stein (Fiddler on the Roof), music and lyrics by Stan Daniels ("The Mary Tyler Moore Show"), and directed by Stuart Ross (Forever Plaid). Musical Direction is by Gerald Sternbach. The show will run for 23 performances only, February 8 - March 1, 2015, in the Lovelace Studio Theater (press opening February 11).

The cast includes Joel Brooks (Mr. Forman), Janet Dacal (Miss B), Anne DeSalvo (Mrs. Emma Kolowitz), Mueen Jahan (Ensemble), Gerry McIntyre (Mr. Pike), Sara Niemietz (Wanda), Robert Picardo (Mr. Morris Kolowitz), Amy Pietz (Angela Marlowe), Jeff Skowron (Marvin), Nick Ullett (Harrison Marlowe), and Noah Weisberg (David Kolowitz).

Based on the semi-autobiographical novel by iconic writer-comedian Carl Reiner and the play of the same title by Stein, Enter Laughing - The Musical tells the story of David Kolowitz, a stage-struck errand boy from the Bronx who wants to be a big time Broadway star (is that so much to ask?). Unfortunately, oy vey, his parents don't approve; they want him to become a pharmacist. They aren't the only thing standing in the way of his Broadway dreams, however: he also has a despondent girlfriend, dismissive boss, distracted best friend and disgusted acting coach.
