‘Run for your Wife’ opens July 21 at Broadway Palm

The Off Broadway Palm Theatre presents Run For Your Wife playing July 21 through August 28, 2011. Written by the “master of farce” Ray Cooney, this comedy is said to be one of the funniest and most popular of all his plays, says Melissa Vogt, Broadway Theatre’s marketing coordinator.

Run For Your Wife is the story of London cab driver John Smith who has two separate lives, complete with two wives, Mary and Barbara.

He has successfully kept his two lives separate by spending mornings with Barbara and evenings with Mary, Vogt said.

Hilarity ensues when he is injured during a mugging and the police return him to the wrong home at the wrong time. To complicate things further, John’s picture appears in the local paper and the police show up to investigate how two men named John Smith with two different addresses were both mugged on the same day, Vogt said.

The role of John Smith is played by Southwest Florida favorite, Victor Legarreta and the role of one of his wives, Mary Smith, is played by his real life wife, Kelly Legarreta. Audiences may remember him from numerous main stage and Off Broadway Palm productions.

Along with working here at Broadway Palm, Victor and Kelly were both very involved with The Herb Strauss Schoolhouse Theater on Sanibel Island where they starred in numerous productions. He was also the artistic director for The Off Broadway Palm and the artistic producer for the Schoolhouse Theater for many years, Vogt said.

The Off Broadway Palm Theatre is an intimate 98-seat general admission theatre, located in the main lobby of Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. With no seat further than 25 feet away from the stage, you become part of the show.

Run For Your Wife will be at The Off Broadway Palm Theatre July 21 through August 28, 2011. Performances are Thursday through Sunday evenings with selected matinees.

Ticket prices range from $25 to $39 with group discounts available for parties of 20 or more.
