MARRY ME, DENNIS BRANIGAN Reading to be Presented by The Ringwald Theatre and Compulsion Dance & Theater

On November 4, 2022 The Ringwald Theatre and Compulsion Dance & Theater will present a reading of the romantic comedy MARRY ME, DENNIS BRANIGAN written by Michael Mizerany.

Michael is best known as an award winning choreographer and director in San Diego. Most recently, he has branched out into playwriting. His plays have been presented at The Abyss Theater in Florida, The Flight Theater in Los Angeles, 10th Avenue Arts Complex and Diversionary Black Box Theater in San Diego. His short play, 20 MINUTES & COUNTING won the Best Writing Award at the 2016 San Diego International Fringe Festival.

MARRY ME, DENNIS BRANIGAN is inspired by the screwball comedies of the 30's and 40's. Dennis is having a hard time dealing with the loss of his fiancé Scott. He doesn't want to date but his overbearing yet well-intentioned sister Susan has other ideas. She sets him up on a blind date with a cutie named Quint. To make matters worse, Dennis' dearly departed fiancé returns as a ghost. Seen only by him, Scott meddles in Dennis' life, leading his family and friends to believe he is going bat crap crazy

MARRY ME, DENNIS BRANIGAN is directed by Michael Mizerany and features Miles Bond, Peter Giessl, N'Jeri Nicholson, and Brandy Joe Plambeck. Stage directions will be read by Jeff Foust and the Stage Manager will be Phoenix Eldridge.
