Photo Flash: First Look at Peter Levine's New Play APPLE, TABLE, PENNY
Peter Levine's new play, APPLE, TABLE, PENNY, opened at Emerging Artist Theatre's Fall New Work Series on October 3. The production runs until October 13 at TADA Theater in mid-town and is directed by Jennifer Tuttle. Emerging Artists Theatre previously produced Levine's one-act The Gipper and his full-length play, The Kitchen Table.
Max Gelman, a frustrated Borscht Belt comedian, often neglected his roles as husband and father to follow his dream. But now something's wrong. He's been acting strangely and his wife and children are concerned. So is he. Will his family have to deal with an Alzheimer's diagnosis?
Complete with jokes, the occasional song, and a cast of characters that includes Carmen Miranda and Jackie Gleason, APPLE, TABLE, PENNY showcases generational struggles, the special love between a grandfather and his granddaughter, and coming to terms with the inevitable that awaits us all.
The cast features Abraham McNeil Adams (A Christmas Carol/A Contemporary Theatre), Jerry Ferris (Holy Child/Roy Arias), Peter Levine (The Madwoman of Chaillot/Neighborhood Playhouse), Leslie Lynn Meeker (NEXT FALL/Stomping Grounds Theatre Company), Vivian Meisner (Illegal Helpers/Austrian Cultural Center NY), Laura Sametz (New Amsterdam/NBC) and Paula Shtein (The Wall/The National Yiddish Theatre).
The creative team includes lighting design by Brian Aldous, costume design by Joey Kovach and stage management by Emily Stine.
