Handle With Care

Tony Award Nominee and Broadway legend Carol Lawrence (West Side Story) heads the ensemble cast of four in the "hilariously funny," "fearlessly adorable" new romantic comedy Handle With Care, by Emmy Award Nominee Jason Odell Williams, directed by Karen Carpenter (Love, Loss and What I Wore). Handle With Care comes to New York after charming audiences in successful regional productions across the country.

Handle With Care tells the story of a young Israeli woman who reluctantly travels with her grandmother to America. Fate and hilarious circumstances bring together the young woman, who has little command of English, and a young American man with little command of romance. Is their inevitable love an accident? Or destiny generations in the making?
