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

to meet the cast and crew.

John Shanken-Kaye as Lou, Nick Palmieri as Tino
and Dan Maurer as Mike.
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.
Tickets are $12 for adults, and $10 for seniors, students and children.
