CHRIS BROOKS AS DAN ROWAN, MEAGAN BOMAR AS GOLDIE HAWN AND JAMES J. MORAN AS DICK MARTIN IN "LAUGH IN"
You can bet your sweet bippy that the Connecticut Cabaret Theatre in Berlin is bursting the seams of its mod psychedelic mini-skirts and polishing its granny sun glasses, preparing to take off into la-la land. Put on your white go-go boots and run back in time to a more gentle and groovier era as "Rowan and Martin's Laugh In" celebrates nostalgia with a capital N.
Weekends until Saturday, October 24, Kris McMurray will produce and direct all those great television sketches that tickled your funny bone back in the late 1960's and early 1970's. Ed Friendly and George Schlatter have assembled all the principals we grew to love, with Chris Brooks as Dan Rowan, James J. Moran as Dick Martin and Meagan Bomar as Goldie Hawn.
Grab your rubber chicken, practice dancing the swim and the pony, tell a few knock-knock jokes and let the Fickle Finger of Fate lead you right to the CT Cabaret's door. With quick one liners about everything from goats and lizards to politics, visits on a park bench with the feisty little old lady Ruth Buzzi, a romp with "Here Comes de Judge" and a fast travel through the tulips with Tiny Tim, this energetic cast of seventeen is eager to entertain
Come play with Abby Brooks, Sue Emond, Nancy Ferenc, Linda Kelly, Maria Pompile, Bobby Schultz, Dave Wall, Will Dayton, Russell Fish, Barbara Horan, George Lombardo, Grace Rizuto, Carleigh Schultz and Brianna Zuk as they recreate the comedy show, slamming windows in the joke wall cleverly created by James J. Moran and all way before "Saturday Night Live" captured the spotlight.
