| It was great to see the multi-talented emcee of Hollywood Squares gorgeous John Davidson, live on the stage of Johnson County’s New Theatre Restaurant. Playing April 16 through June 22, 2008.
Seeing celebrities live has always been one of the greatest aspects of going to your favorite theatre, Don Knotts, Jamie Farr, Loretta Swit, Karen Valentine, Tom Poston, Gary Sandy, Elinor Donohue and more.
“John Davidson is a great talent and it shows through his comedy acting efforts in USA’s greatest comedy playwright Neil Simon’s Rumours, hilarious confusion and happy happenstance abound among the familiar locally-based players in the popular theatre’s latest comedy.”
Rumours takes place in New York suburbs when upper crusters gather for a lively party that soon turns into a big cover-up to prevent the society embarrassment of an neighborhood shooting by the host, the Deputy Mayer of New York, who has shot himself through the earlobe.
NBC’s Gene Shalit says “not only side splitting, but front and back splitting.” Our guests, Jim and Rosemary McCoy, couldn’t stop laughing. They though the play was great. “I hadn’t been to the New Theatre for a long time and forgot how great it was, and the food too,” Rosemary remembered.
We love almost as much as much as the play, the great food at the New Theatre, wish they had just a restaurant somewhere that we could go to would be wonderful. We have never been disappointed with the food. Call for your tickets today and tell them that the Gazette sent you.
As always, with a New Theatre Restaurant production, the players deliver their beautifully timed comedy punch lines in a near perfect sequence. We can never understand how the human mind can remember to say the right thing at the right time in the right place on stage. The answer, much rehearsal, great timing, and an appreciative Midwest audience and it pays of in a very funny play.
