Theater and Mob Worlds Collide in "Breaking Legs"
at MCCC's Kelsey Theatre March 2-11

2/9/07


Looking for a riotously good time at the theater? Like 40 Productions has an offer you can't refuse with its latest theatrical adventure, "Breaking Legs," coming to MCCC's Kelsey Theatre. Dates and show times for this "mob meets mild-mannered professor" comedy are: Fridays and Saturdays, March 2, 3, 9, and 10 at 8 p.m., and Sundays, March 4 and 11 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is conveniently located on Mercer's West Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road. An opening night reception will follow the performance on Mar. 2 to give the audience a chance to meet the cast and crew.

Jillian Ritchie, standing, is Angie; sitting from left, are:
John Shanken-Kaye as Lou, Nick Palmieri as Tino
and Dan Maurer as Mike.

"Breaking Legs" chronicles the hilariously misguided plan of Terence O'Keefe, a seriously under-funded professor playwright. Why not ask the family of a wealthy former student to finance his new play? But a major snag surfaces when the "family" turns out to include some menacing Mafia godfathers. Life gets even more complicated for Terence when he becomes romantically entangled with his former student, who has more than the usual family baggage. Written by Tom Dulack, "Breaking Legs" was first performed Off-Broadway in 1991, and continues to be enjoyed by audiences around the country.

The cast of "Breaking Legs" includes Lonnie McCullough as Terence, John Shanken-Kaye as Lou, Jillian Ritchie as Angie, Dan Maurer as Mike, Nick Palmieri as Tino, and Dave Christoffersen as Frankie. Dan Spalluto directs the show; Tracy Antozzeski is stage manager.
