The Prattville Way Off Broadway Theatre is proud to announce our cast list for our upcoming production of "Cookin' With Gus".
Gussie: A robust, outgoing woman will be played by Dana Smith. Walter: A complacent teddy-bear type will be played by Matt Givens. Bernie: A fast-talking, hip theatrical agent will be played by Zyna Captain. Carmen: A fun-loving, tippling gypsy will be played by Teri Sweeney.
In this comedy, Gussie Richardson is a famous food columnist and cookbook author. Her agent comes to tell her she's been offered her own daily network television show. She wants to do it, but her husband Walter is dead set against it and Gussie discovers she has stage fright and can't open her mouth in front of a camera. Everybody tries to help her get over it . . . Walter through hypnotism, Bernie her agent by threats; and even wacky Gypsy Carmen from next door casts spells. Just when she thinks she's cured, the taping turns into a comic nightmare concluding in an all-out food fight that almost ends the show and her marriage. Cookin' with Gus brings together four unlikely characters in a stew of hijinks and hilarity. Fun for the performers and a great evening for the audience. Rehearsals will begin in January, with production dates from February 21 to March 10th.
