If you happen to be in Connecticut or New York at all this summer, there's a play you might consider seeing. Not that it's a Sherlock Holmes play, by any stretch of the imagination. But the casting - at least in one regard - is very Sherlockian.
Al Rosenblatt, BSI ("Inspector Bradstreet") has informed me that Paxton Whitehead will be appearing at the Westport Country Playhouse in Westport, CT from July 12 - July 27, 2007 in Relatively Speaking, a comedy.
According to the site, the plot goes something like this:
Greg falls madly for Ginny whose affections are elsewhere. Greg follows Ginny when she goes on an unexpected visit to ‘see her parents.’ Meanwhile, Philip suspects his wife, Sheila, is having an affair. Sheila is not the least bit suspicious of Philip. Could Sheila and Philip both be wrong? Who are Philip and Sheila’s unexpected guests for Sunday lunch?No word whether Mr. Whitehead is playing Greg or Phillip (or Ginny or Sheila, for that matter). For those of you unfamiliar with his work, his stage credits can be found on the Internet Broadway Database and his film and TV work can be found on the Internet Movie Database.
A marvelous mixture of misunderstandings, mistaken identities and incriminating slippers.
Tickets are available through the Westport Country Playhouse site, phone and online orders.
