Raleigh, N.C., (September 1, 2011)– Raleigh Little Theatre, partnering with Actors Comedy Lab, presents And The Winner Is, a heartfelt and slightly wicked tale of life, death and sacrifice. The performance runs from September 10-26 in the Gaddy-Goodwin Theatre in RLT.
And The Winner Is tells the comic story of Tyler Johnes, a self-obsessed movie star, who is finally nominated for an Oscar then dies the night before the award ceremony. Outraged at his bad luck and determined to know if he wins (even though he’s dead), he bargains with a heavenly gatekeeper to return to earth for the big night. Along the way, he drags his agent, his acting rival, his bombshell girlfriend and his ex-wife into the journey, in a wildly twisting take of Hollywood, the afterlife and how we are judged. The play written by Mitch Albom (Tuesdays with Morrie) has been hailed for its wit, orginiality and hilarious portrayal of Hollywood values. Bunny Safron of Actors Comedy Lab, directs. Come enjoy and evening of fun, but be more forewarned that the show contains adult language.
Tickets for And The Winner Is are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors and students. Tickets can be purchased online at www.raleighlittletheatre.org or from the RLT Box Office at 919-821-3111.
