Abingdon Theatre Company presents “The Gentleman Caller”

THE GENTLEMAN CALLER

a new play by Philip Dawkins
directed by Tony Speciale

NEW YORK PREMIERE

May 5-26 at The Cherry Lane Theatre 

Although now regarded as two of history’s finest American playwrights, back in 1944, William Inge and Tennessee Williams hadn’t yet experienced anything close to success. The Gentleman Caller, a new play by Philip Dawkins (Charm, Le Switch, The Homosexuals),takes us back in time before the Chicago premiere of The Glass Menagerie. Inge, a dissatisfied newspaper critic, invites Williams to his St. Louis apartment for an interview. This sexy, fraught rendezvous sparks a relationship, which radically alters the course of their lives and the American Theatre.

Television personality, pop singer, and author Luann de Lesseps–known as the Countess on The Real Housewives of New York City–premieres her debut nightclub act, Countess and Friends.

Hip as a New York minute and classically chic, de Lesseps’s glamorous life in the fast lane on several continents (together with a solid decade at the center of reality TV) provides fodder for hilarious stories, one-of-a-kind anecdotes, and, of course, some standards and pop songs in her inimitable style. She will be joined by an eclectic group of New York’s most sought after nightlife stars, both legendary and ascendant. Countess and Friends promises a glorious return to the heyday of cosmopolitan evening entertainment.

Luann de Lesseps has sung at Birdland, with Natalie Cole and Billy Stritch, and on an all-star bill at Town Hall with Liza Minnelli, Chita Rivera, Lucie Arnaz, and Marilyn Maye. Her three dance singles, “Chic C’est La Vie,” “Girl Code,” and “Money Can’t Buy You Class,” have charted on iTunes and remain consistent favorite club anthems.

She has a “powerhouse voice” (The New York Times). He is “a theater world heartthrob” (The New York Times). And together Orfeh and Andy Karl have had an impressively long run as one of Broadway’s best couples.

Before Orfeh leaves to star in Pretty Woman the Musical, Broadway’s power couple celebrates the release of their new album with a return engagement of their hit show Legally Bound. The sexy, funny, and enormously talented duo tear through an eclectic mix of pop, rock, rhythm and blues, and show tunes that is sure to excite and delight! Orfeh and Andy will be joined by musical director Steven Jamail and their band for an unforgettable evening of chart-toppers, show-stoppers, and high belting. Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright.
