Middletown Lyric Theatre
June 7-15
[Middletown]

Directed by Charley Shafor

Cast: Claire LaNicca, Sally Fint, Avi Gilbert, Michael Schlotterbeck & Jack Sweeten

The setting is a new “luxury” high-rise apartment with Spanish décor in Coney Island, the home of a middle-class Jewish family struggling to put up a good front even though continually short of cash. The father, Herbie, who sells lighting fixtures, is chronically overworked and underpaid; his wife, Doris, tells herself (and whomever may be listening) that she loves her life—even though, as the play begins, she is shredding her wedding dress to make a Halloween costume; their older son, Stewie, eagerly awaits his bar mitzvah with an eye less on its religious aspects than on the potential loot to be gained in gifts; and the youngest son, Mitchell, is absorbed in writing a musical version of Death of a Salesman (entitled Willy!)
