Love Street playhouse Presents the Rom-Com "Crossing Delancy"

Love Street Playhouse presents "Crossing Delancy," a charming romantic-comedy set in 1980s New York City. The play explores the old age traditional roles of women as expressed by Bubble, the lovable, feisty, sharp-witted Jewish grandma in her eighties (played by Love Street Playhouse owner and artistic director, Melinda Leuthold) contrasted by the liberated options of the "new woman" explored by her granddaughter, Isabelle "Izzy" Grossman (played by Jennifer Johnson).

When Bubble and the matchmaker Hannah (played by Corrie Graham) try to arrange a date for Izzy with Sam, the local pickleman (played by Christopher Cleaveland, Seven Keys to Baldpate) a generational and cultural clash erupts. Izzy has ideas of her own and is more interested in the famous author, Tyler (played by Paul Segren, Wait Until Dark, An Inspector Calls).

Christopher Cleaveland, Jennifer Johnson and Paul Segren.
Isabel is a modern woman who lives alone and works in a book shop. When she is not pining after a handsome author, she is visiting her grandmother in Manhattan's Lower East Side. The conflict is resolved with a generous dose of humor, affection and wisdom. 

The production is said to be suitable for all ages. See poster (above left) for dates and times. For more information please contact the Love Street Playhouse ticket coordinator: tickets@lovestreetplayhouse.com.

Look for our review at noon, Saturday, February 9th.
