Get Your Theater-Loving Arse to 'Mr. Marmalade'

Posted By on Wed, Jun 30, 2010 at 11:23 AM

The latest from Live Theatre Workshop's Etcetera series, Mr. Marmalade by Noah Haidle, opens tomorrow night, Thursday, July 1, at 7:30 p.m., at the 5317 E. Speedway Blvd. theater.

This show features the LTW's best. First, it's directed by Kristi Loera, LTW's executive director, and the cast includes City High School student Lucille Petty (who was absolutely amazing in company's production of Picnic), and other LTW favorites: Stephen Frankenfield, Michael Martinez, Richard Gremel, Shanna Brock, Michele Loera, Christopher Johnson, Amanda Gremel and Danielle Dryer. The play continues through July 17, on Friday and Saturday nights at 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $10. Call 327-4242 for reservations.

Here's a bit on the play:

Lucy, a four year-old girl with an extremely overactive imagination, has produced her first imaginary friend - Mr. Marmalade. Unfortunately, Lucy's hectic and abusive home life is reflected in her creation, resulting in an invisible companion with a cocaine addiction and a severe problem with leaf-blowers and pornography. With the help of her friend Larry (the youngest suicide attempt in the history of New Jersey) Lucy sets out to divorce Mr. Marmalade as her imagination becomes more and more violent, desperate and adult. A smart and funny black comedy about navigating childhood in these bizarre and difficult times.

Sounds like a late-night treat.
