THE EXES, A New Bromantic Comedy by Lenore Skomal, Begins Previews August 7 at Theater Row

THE EXES, a new 'bromantic' comedy written by award-winning author Lenore Skomal and directed by Magda S. Nyiri will begin previews on Thursday, August 7th and run through Saturday, October 5th, Off-Broadway at Theatre Row, 410 West 42nd Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues. The official press opening will be on Thursday, August 15th.

It's self-made billionaire Richard Killingworth's daughter's big day! The last person he wants to see is his estranged wife Mavis-the woman who put the "ex" in "exes." Celebrating with his best friend Dick, who happens to be Mavis' first husband, Richard's life turns upside down when the Queen of Chaos drops in, unannounced, with her new fiancé in tow. Throw in a sharp-tongued butler (um, house manager), a champagne-soaked bridezilla and a snarky stepson, and you have perfect storm of pandemonium-the fun kind-in this comedy with a heart, reminding us why marriage and divorce make for the strangest of bedfellows.

The cast of THE EXES features Tim Hayes, David Farrington, John Coleman Taylor, Neil Vincent Smith, Karen Forte, Alison Preece and Kyle Porter.

THE EXES features set and costume design by Craig Napoliello, lighting by Ross Graham, music by Nathan Repasz, and movement consultation by Meredith Glisson. The Production's Assistant Director is Alison Preece, the Stage Manager is Alexander Allen and the Assistant Stage Manager is Roberta Cooper. General Management is by Cesa Entertainment. Company Management is by Diane Alaniello.
