Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, by Terrence McNally
February 4 - 20, 2010
Terrence McNally explores the question of romance in this frank, quirky post-coital first-date interlude between two wary, weary veterans of the heart. They’ve already slept together; now they face the daunting prospect of intimacy. ''You just don't decide to fall in love with people out of the blue,'' says Frankie, but Johnny, a fast-talking short-order cook and diehard romantic, tenaciously disagrees. Star Bar luminary David E. Mason and stellar newcomer Kara Whitney heat up the stage this Valentine’s Day.
Please be advised that this production contains brief nudity, sophisticated adult situations and adult conversation.
Production will be directed by Alysabeth Clements Mosley. More information at www.starbarplayers.org.
