SUDDENLY, LAST SUMMER Comes to Island City Stage

Aging, beauty, hypocrisy, greed, sexual repression and cannibalism drive Island City Stage's production of Tennessee William's gothic mystery Suddenly, Last Summer, running through April 17, 2022. Suddenly, Last Summer is part of the award-winning theater company's 10th Anniversary 2021-22 South Florida Season.

On a hot, steamy afternoon in 1936 New Orleans, we find Violet Venable and her niece, Catherine, waging battle in a war that will cement the legacy of Violet's son, Sebastian. Was he a brilliant artist, devoted son or sexual predator? What really happened last summer?

Directed by Andy Rogow, Suddenly, Last Summer stars Angie Radosh as Violet Venable, Jeanine Gangloff Levy as Catherine Holly and Jonathan Furedy as Dr. Cukrowicz.

Angie Radosh makes her Island City Stage debut in the iconic Tennessee Williams role of Violet Venable. She is a three-time Carbonell award-winner for Stuff (Caldwell Theater), Cabaret (Maltz Jupiter Theatre) and Exit The King (Palm Beach Dramaworks). She has been honored with Silver Palm awards for her work in The Glass Menagerie (New Theatre), Speaking Elephant (Women's Theatre Project) and Breadcrumbs (Primal Forces). Other South Florida credits include The Children (Gablestage), An Inspector Calls (Maltz Jupiter Theatre), Mothers and Sons (Gablestage, Broadwayworld.com best actress), and memorably The Music Man (Wick) with her son, John Tartaglia.

Jeanine Gangloff Levy is thrilled to return to the stage after this two year pause. Some favorite credits include Doralee in 9 to 5 the Musical, the Carbonell-nominated Paulette in Legally Blonde, Jackie in Disaster (Slow Burn), Amina in Dance Nation, Bellamonte in Emperor of the Moon (Thinking Cap Theatre), and Lana Turner in Starmaker (Island City Stage). Other regional credits include Theatre Lab, Palm Beach Dramaworks, Broward Stage Door, West Boca Theatre Company, Williamstown Theatre, Cherry Lane Theatre, Mill Mountain, Parade Productions and Evening Star.

Jonathan Furedy returns to Island City Stage after his successful run as Matthew in Altar Boyz. Prior to that, he spent two years sailing the world as a soloist for AIDA Cruises. Other credits include Kevin in Octopus, Launce in Two Gentlemen of Verona, Horatio in Hamlet, Bert in Mary Poppins, Emmett in Legally Blonde: The Musical, Gaston in Beauty and the Beast, Thénardier in Les Miserables, Ali Hakim in Oklahoma! and Jason in Bare: A Pop Opera,.

Lisa King as Mrs. Holly, Laurie Tanner as Miss Foxhill, Christian Vandepas as George Holly and Carol Caselle as Sister Felicity round out the cast.
