TINY BUBBLES -- a new comedy by Richard Willett (TRIPTYCH, THE FLID SHOW, RANDOM HARVEST) -- will be given its New York premiere this summer with preview performances starting Thursday, July 12 prior to its official opening on Monday, July 16 at the Medicine Show Theatre (549 W. 52 St.) in Manhattan.
Directed by Eliza Beckwith, TINY BUBBLES is produced by New Directions Theater, a company in NYC dedicated to new plays, with past productions having included the NY premiere of Michael Weller's GHOST ON FIRE along with the world-premieres of John Attanas's HERMIONE: TALES OF SEXUAL FRUSTRATION, Olga Humphrey's F-STOP and Richard Willett's TRIPTYCH, THE FLID SHOW and RANDOM HARVEST.
The cast of TINY BUBBLES features Jay Alvarez, Amy Staats, Maureen Kenny, Matthew Jellison and Timothy Elliott.
TINY BUBBLES concerns what happens when a longstanding drinking friendship between two men, both gay -- the high-flying Danny and the more grounded Kirk -- gets complicated after Kirk decides to join AA. All manner of unpredictable things occur when one man's sobriety plunges his disconcerted drinking buddy into a dream world in which he alternately lives as a cloistered nun -- and as a 'Mad Men'-like exec partial to three martini lunches.
