Why are Jerry Adler from the “Sopranos”, Joyce DeWitt from “Threes Company” and Harris Doran from the “Black Donnellys” all coming to the “Quiet Corner” of Connecticut? The attraction is the comedic genius of Mike Reiss four-time Emmy award-winning writer for “The Simpsons”.
Mr. Reiss was born in Bristol CT, and has written a new play, “I’m Connecticut”. The world premiere will be at nearby Jorgansen Theater on the campus of the University of Connecticut running from December 1- 10. The expectations are high with the cast including DeWitt, Adler and Doran sure to deliver a wonderful theater experience.
Reiss, is widely known for his satirical comic genius and he has turned to roots in Connecticut for inspiration. “I’m Connecticut” is a love story (or is it a comedy) about a young man from Simsbury living in New York City and searching for love. Like all young men he has anxieties of dating and begins to question himself about what it means to be a Nutmegger, a Connecticut native.
The evening promises to be surprising and hysterical as we discover what Reiss finds in our identity as residents of The Land Of Steady Habits. Plan an evening at the theater now before it is all sold out and your friends are all talking about the genius of Reiss and the acting of DeWitt, Adler and Doran.
