Maurer Productions OnStage has announced open auditions for their production of Neil Simon’s Jake’s Women. Here are all the details!
Maurer Productions OnStage, the company that brought you the Perry Award and Kelsey Award winning Laughter on the 23rd Floor, Driving Miss Daisy and Lend Me a Tenor is holding open auditions for its upcoming fall production of Neil Simon’s Jake’s Women on Saturday, July 9th from 12pm to 5pm and Sunday, July 10th from 12PM to 5PM.
The award-winning production team of MPOnStage brings you America’s premier comic playwright who makes another hilarious foray into the world of modern relationships. Jake, a novelist who is more successful with fiction that with life, faces a marital crisis by daydreaming about the women in his life. The comedic and sometimes moving flashbacks played in his mind are interrupted by visitations from actual females. Jake’s women include a revered first wife who was killed years earlier in an accident; his daughter who is recalled as a child and as a young woman; his boisterous and bossy sister; an opinionated analyst; his current wife who is leaving Jake for another man; and a prospective third wife. Jake, played by Alan Alda on Broadway, and his women definitely deliver.
This production will be presented at Kelsey Theatre on the West Windsor campus of Mercer County Community College. The show will require 8 actors. The production will be directed by Diana Gilman Maurer and Costumed by Anthony Remer.
