ANOTHER MAN'S POISON Plays Two Week Engagement At Peter Jay Sharp Theater 8/12-23

ORIELLE CREATIVE COMPANY is pleased to announce the world premiere production of George O. Brome's ...ANOTHER MAN'S POISON directed by Passion Hansome. ...ANOTHER MAN'S POISON will play a two-week limited engagement at Off-Broadway's Peter Jay Sharp Theater (416 West 42nd Street.) Performances begin Wednesday, August 12 and continue through Sunday, August 23.

...ANOTHER MAN'S POISON uncovers the irony of success, juxtaposed with the fascinating backdrop of prime time television. When Frankie Masters, a struggling comedian, gets the opportunity to have his own network television show in 1970, his imminent stardom threatens to reveal the hidden conflict and mounting turmoil of his personal life. Taking place prior to the celebrity tabloid when exposés were the norm, it takes a close look at lives intertwined where each character confronts personal sacrifices that will forever impact them.

...ANOTHER MAN'S POISON takes place during a pivotal time in history when the Vietnam War, exposing the racial divide, and the politicizing of sexual identity, all conspire to add depth and texture to the drama.

A quintessential Hollywood story with a distinct New York bite, ...ANOTHER MAN'S POISON is full of pointed humor, straightforward drama, and allows audiences to concede to their incessant desire to be a voyeur to the reality of "making of a celebrity." It is a story of family, ambition, and the choices that are made along the way.

The production stars: Leland Gantt (Police Boys, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, Killa Dilla) as Frankie Masters, stars Penelope Lowder as Pauline Phillips, stars James Edward Shippy (Behind Closed Doors, Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters, and playing Martin Luther King Jr. in The Meeting) as Alan Phillips, Steve Greenstein as Mel Stein (50th Anniversary production of West Side Story and Confessions of a Shopaholic), Toni Stanton as Sarah (Broadway: Angela Lansbury, A Celebration), and Dennis Hearn as Dick (Scorsese's Boardwalk Empire).

The production features scenic design by Kevin Lee Allen, costume design by Ali Turns, and lighting design by Burke Wilmore. Sean O'Halloran is the sound designer, Dave McDaniel is the technical director and Bayo is the stage manager.
