“Alone Together” Now Playing
“Alone Together,” now playing at the Landon Playhouse in Port Charlotte, presents a situation that probably has occurred in real life hundreds of times in our area. Middle age couple George and Helene Butler are beginning to enjoy their empty nest. They are alone together at long last, but not for long.
All three of their sons come charging back home after experiencing some hard knocks in the real world, and Mom and Dad have quite a time trying to push them out again. Much laughter ensures, along with some lessons learned.
In this version of Lawrence Roman’s 1985 Broadway hit, Paula Pender directs Jerry Jones as George and Marjory DiPaola as Helene, along with John DiGiovanni, Meegan DeYoung, Taylor Dixon and David Watson. Steve Pignataro serves as stage manager, Chris Smith designed and built the set, and Shirley Noel Shirley Noel created the costumes.
“Alone Together” runs through March 11 at the Langdon, the Charlotte Players’ black box theater located inside the Community Theater Center, 1182 Market Street, Port Charlotte.
Evening performances start at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, and there are matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $18 for adults, $9 for students, and may be ordered here or by calling 941-255-1022.
The Langdon is an intimate, 80-seat theater, so reservations are recommended.
The first Sunday matinee, on March 4, was a sell-out, so get your tickets soon for a play the Hollywood Reporter called “delightfully wise and witty.”
