Rhinebeck Theatre Society is pleased to present Neil Simon's hysterical comedy, Rumors, directed by Michael Juzwak.
The curtain rises on an upscale home in the 1980s belonging to the Deputy Mayor of New York. Ken and Chris Gorman arrive for their hosts’ tenth anniversary party only to hear a gun shot. As they attempt to sort out what has happened and three more couples arrive, a collective task to elude, divert, and distract becomes the name of the game. Here is Neil Simon at his funniest; as Frank Rich of the New York Times describes the play, this is “a self-described farce that has nothing on its mind except making the audience laugh.”
Starring Tamara Cacchione,Tracy Carney, Austin Lightning Carrothers, David Dancyger, Joe Felece, Andrew Joffe, Cindy Kubik, John Remington, Petie Russo & Elaine Young.
*Sensory Friendly Performance - Sunday, Jan. 19 at 3pm. Changes to the show will address sound, lights, and noise as some individuals can be sensitive to light and sound and some are prone to epileptic reactions in the presence of strobe lights. To accommodate these persons, sound in the show is capped at 90 decibels, strobe lights are cut, and surprising elements like sudden blackouts are toned down. House lights are increased by 30 percent and advance notice of all scenes in the show with significant noise or harsh lighting is given to parents and caregivers in special guides to the performance. The goal will be to maintain the integrity of the show and the script is never changed. Everyone will have the same experience. *Please note - this is a farce - there is door slamming and lots of screaming. We will give you a breakdown of the scenes in our guideline, but this show is full of surprises!
