Set in Paris, Limonade Tous les Jours is a delightful & sparkling romantic comedy that tells the story of an American man who meets a French woman in a cafe. Both of them are recovering from recent ruined love relationships. They spend the day wandering through the city together, and speak of all the reasons why they shouldn't fall in love. And so of course, they do.
"the cell is lucky enough to have a show we love. We'd be fools not to do our part to help this beautiful little production live for as long possible," said Nancy Manocherian, Founding Artistic Director of the cell. "At the cell we like to stimulate our audiences by presenting a variety of new works and talent along with the occasional modern classic.""'Limonade Tous les Jour' (lemonade every day) is what it says at the bottom of the menu at the Paris brasserie La Coupole," said Playwright Charles L. Mee. "Josephine Baker used to hang out at La Coupole, and Henry Miller and Salvador Dali and Alexander Calder and Hemingway and Fitzgerald and Picasso-and now, with these actors and this director and this production, we see we can go there, too, and know for sure we're going to have a fantastically wonderful time." Limonade Tous les Jours' cast includes Austin Pendleton (film, TV, stage, director, playwright, actor), Eleanor Handley (Hudson Valley Shakespeare, Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, New School for Drama) and Anton Briones (Seussical with TheatreWorks).
