The Lincoln Hills Players Club presents a Broadway comedy four times in early June.
“Bermuda Avenue Triangle,” written by award-winning playwrights Renée Taylor and Joseph Bologna, doesn’t feature a vortex of mysteriously vanishing ships but rather a cadre of dysfunctional people on Las Vegas’ Bermuda Avenue in a comical tale of misguided romance and subterfuge.
In a convoluted plot, two New York women have been coaxed – kicking and screaming –by their two middle-aged daughters to move to a distastefully-decorated Las Vegas retirement condo. A Bermuda-shorts-clad Rabbi and a swindling would-be gigolo round out the cast of six.
As the curtain opens, daughters Rita and Angela, who instigated the maternal East-West relocation, are falling over backward to extol the delights of the new abode. New Yorkers Fannie and Tess are anything but electrified over the faux-tropical bamboo and thatch décor.
Soon the breezy Rabbi Levine enters with a welcoming basket of “dietetic oat bran macaroons” and a cheery invitation to the condo’s upcoming bus trip to Red Rock Canyon. But oh dear! The potentially pleasant bus trip is tainted by the dubious heroics of one Johnny Paolucci, who turns out to be more con-man than hero.
“When I read the script, I loved the story from start to finish,” said the play’s director Becky Nicholson. “We can all identify with the plight of the wacky characters as they move into a new senior community. Everyone is going to love this racy and hilarious play.”
