Throughout their childhood, Holly and Fern’s parents were wildly unpredictable, endearingly neurotic, and blatantly dysfunctional. Now, in their eighties, they are facing the biggest crises of their lives, and it’s up to Holly and Fern to lend a hand. In the Car with Blossom and Len is a smart, biting and poignant comedy about growing up and growing old – not necessarily in that order.
“Joni Fritz’s In the Car with Blossom and Len is a wonderfully told, relatable story about a family facing some transitions. Our audiences have always connected to plays that focus on family relationships and I know they’ll love this one. We are thrilled to have such a talented group of women lead this production, the level of talent that we have ‘In The Car” is incredible. I couldn’t be happier that Queens Theatre is producing this show.” – Queens Theatre, Executive Director Taryn Sacramone.
The talented cast includes two-time Emmy winner Martha Byrne (TV: “As The World Turns”), Emily Jon Mitchell (Regional The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife), Peter Levine (World Premiere: In the Car with Blossom and Len), Patricia Randell (HBO’s Too Big to Fail) and Whitney Andrews. Creative team includes: Bob Phillips, Anna Grigo (Set Design), Jason Kantrowitz (Lighting Design), Dustin Cross (Costume Design), John Salutz (Sound Design). Katie White (Properties Design), Susan Whelan (Production Stage Manager), Stephen DeAngelis (Casting), Heather Shields (Associate Producer).
In the Car With Blossom and Len is the recipient of the Susan Gaspard Award and received its world premiere at Centenary Stages in 2015 where it was called a “very entertaining, involving and affecting play” Talkin’ Broadway.
I was very impressed with the play and highly recommend it. Joni Fritz is a genius in bringing a great cast together, with so many Emmy Award winners. Go see it and tell them you heard it from the World Liberty TV, Theater Review Team . See More in our World Liberty TV , Theater Review Channel.
