COME LAUGH with the silly antics on stage at the Powerhouse Theatre in Waveny Park!
“Drop Dead!” is a play about a bad stage production, similar to “The Play That Goes Wrong” or “Play On”. Most of the action takes place on a stage that has to be transformed to resemble the low-budget “off-off-off-off Broadway” stage called for in the script.
The stage, which is said to have been created on a $35 budget, is complete with uneven walls and defective props. Even the furniture is painted into the background.
At Town Players of New Canaan, we’re so used to doing all the little things that make a set look really good, this is gonna be a challenge to continually remind ourselves NOT to do those things, and rather to make the set look …. BAD. And what’s a comedy murder mystery without a few deaths, one scantily clad woman, a diva, a temperamental director, an inspector, and cheese…. Gouda cheese.
