BY ED. WEINBERGER
DIRECTED BY DAN WACKERMAN
STARRING JOSH MOSTEL AND RICHARD MASUR
THEATRE AT ST. CLEMENT'S
(423 WEST 46th STREET- NYC)
FINAL PERFORMANCE IS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 27
New York, NY – Producers Kevin Kennedy, Edmund Gaynes, Ben Feldman, and Alexander "Sandy" Marshall announced today that the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway comedy Two Jews, Talking, by Ed. Weinberger, directed by Dan Wackerman, starring Josh Mostel (My Favorite Year, The Boys Next Door) and Richard Masur (Lucky Guy, "Younger") will play its final performance at Theatre at St. Clement's (423 West 46th Street – between 9th & 10th Avenues) on Sunday, November 27 at 3pm.
Two Jews, Talking takes us on a hilarious romp through time! Two one-act plays bring Lou and Bud together in the Biblical past, and Phil and Marty together in contemporary Long Island. They philosophize about women, sex, food, the divine, and destiny in this tale of companionship and friendship. The show's humor evokes a sense of nostalgia for simpler times – when comedy was rooted in pure fun.
The production features scenic, lighting and projection design by Harry Feiner, costume design by Anthony Paul-Cavaretta, and sound design by Trevor Trotto. The Production Stage Manager is Jacqueline Perez. Casting by Robin Carus (original casting by Carol Hanzel).
The performance schedule is Fridays at 7:00pm, Saturdays at 2:00pm and 7:00pm, and Sundays at 3:00pm.
Tickets are $79.50 and $119.00 and may be purchased through TeleCharge.com/ (212) 239-6200.
