Goldberg Comedy Earns 6 Nominations at MITF Awards

Alex Goldberg's comedy hit I'm In Love With Your Wife has received six nominations for the 1st annual 2007 Midtown International Theater Festival Awards - Outstanding Overall Production of a New Play, Outstanding Playwriting for a New Script, Outstanding Supporting Actor - Ron Palillo, Outstanding Supporting Actress - Katie Kreisler, Outstanding Supporting Actress - Marion Wood and Outstanding Choreography - Ryan Kazprzak.

Goldberg is a busy playwright this summer having two of his plays produced I'm In Love With Your Wife in MITF and Stock Home which is playing in the New York Fringe Festival.  Stock Home has two productions left.  

I'm In Love With Your Wife is "a comedy about multiple seductions where everybody's getting some, except Gary.  When Gary's friend Paul confesses to an affair with Gary's wife, and Paul's wife confides in Gary her own dirty secrets, Gary must face his demons in this story of sexually obsessed New Yorkers.  With the help of his therapist played by Ron Palillo, 'Arnold Horshack' from 'Welcome Back, Kotter,' Gary confronts everyone at a dinner party, but will sexual mania trump morality?," state press notes.

"Nobody chooses one's family. Especially 14-year old Kaylee. In this explicit story of the average family next door, a man does anything for love, including getting his girlfriend the daughter of her dreams. Even if it means taking somebody else's," state notes on Stock Home.

Changuitos Productions is dedicated to creating and developing new works. Their first foray into producing was the comedy Hermanas, written by Monica Yudovich.  After a successful, award-winning, sold-out run in the 2006 New York International Fringe Festival, Hermanas, which featured Denise Quiñones, a former Miss Universe, and Kathryn Kates, "Seinfeld"'s "Babka Lady," the play was invited to be part of the first-ever FringeNYC Encore Series which showcased the biggest hits of the festival.   This summer, they will produce two world-premiere plays by Alex Goldberg in two of New York's biggest festivals – I'm In Love With Your Wife in the 2007 Midtown International Theatre Festival and Stock Home in the 2007 New York International Fringe Festival.  In addition to writing and producing theatre, they are developing film and television projects.  Changuitos Productions is a proud member of NALIP, the National Association of Latino Independent Producers. www.changuitosproductions.com.
