'Speed-the-Plow' to Open Jan. 11 at Little Firehouse Theatre
Tickets are on sale for the Bergen County Players rendition of this prize-winning David Mamet play.
The play opens over four weekends, beginning on Saturday, Jan 11. Friday and
Saturday performances are at 8 p.m. and Sunday performances are at 2 p.m.
BCP’s Speed-the-Plow stars Michael Scelzo of Oradell as Bobby Gould, a newly appointed studio “big shot.” James Parent of Dumont is Charlie Fox, a long-time would-be producer looking for his first hit who brings Gould a “can’t miss” buddy film with a big star attached. Gould loves the idea and the two lick their chops as they discuss the ton of money they’ll make. Enter Karen, Gould’s temporary secretary, played by Erin Cook of Bayonne. She tries to convince Gould instead to back an “artsy” book whose money-making potential is questionable. A wild battle over which film will get made ensues.
Tickets are $20 for all evening performances and $16 for Sunday matinees, and can be purchased online at www.bcplayers.org, by calling 201-261-4200 or by visiting the box office at 298 Kinderkamack Road during regular box office hours.
