TheatreWorks New Milford Holds Casting Call for The Tale of the Allergist's Wife February 22 - 23

NEW MILFORD , CONN. (February 3, 2016) – TheatreWorks New Milford is seeking a cast of 2 men (ages 20 to 60) and 3 women (ages 40 to 80) for The Tale of the Allergist's Wife, an outrageous Tony Award-nominated comedy by Charles Busch.

In The Tale of the Allergist's Wife Marjorie Taub, a middle-aged Upper West Side doctor's wife, is devoted to mornings at the Whitney, afternoons at MOMA and evenings at BAM. Plunged into a mid-life crisis of Medea-like proportions, she's shaken out of her lethargy by the reappearance of a fascinating and somewhat mysterious childhood friend. Can Marjorie, her long-suffering mother and her loving husband Ira, Board Certified Allergist, survive the shake-up? This uproarious comedy received a Tony Award nomination for Best Play of 2001.

Auditions will be held at TheatreWorks, 5 Brookside Ave., New Milford (next to the CVS) on Monday, February 22 and Tuesday, February 23, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
