Arsenic and Old Lace

Celebrated as playwright Joseph Kesselring's most successful play, Arsenic and Old Lace is a side-splitting, farcical tale. An American classic, Arsenic and Old Lace first debuted on Broadway in 1941, in which New York Times critic Brooks Atkinson raved that the production's "casual point of view that is so robustly entertaining." Filled with colorful characters and witty plot twists, this quirky comedy is one for the ages. This production is directed by Tony Award-nominated Gregg Edelman (Broadway: City of Angels, 1776, Into The Woods; BTG: Constellations, Deathtrap). Good-hearted drama critic, Mortimer Brewster appears to lead a normal, happy life. Recently engaged to be married, Mortimer plans a trip to visit his charming, spinster aunts, Abby and Martha Brewster. However, shortly after Mortimer's arrival, he discovers that his innocent aunts have a deadly secret buried in the basement--about a dozen older gentlemen. To Mortimer's dismay, Abby and Martha deem their poisonous habits as charitable acts; convinced that they are putting these men out of their misery. Attempting to protect society without sending Abby and Martha to prison, hilarity and madness ensues as Mortimer tries to wrangle in his crazy aunts, along with his brothers--Theodore, who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt, and maniacal, murderous Jonathan. Director Gregg Edelman says, "Arsenic and Old Lace is one of the great American comedies. It's one of those plays that makes you laugh-out-loud just sitting in your chair and reading it. I can't wait to get into rehearsal with the wonderfully funny actors that BTG is assembling. It's going to be a blast from start to finish."
