CAPE MAY – The Cape May Stage 2016 season is in full swing and continues to shine with the Broadway Series, now in its eighth year, produced in concert with Curtis Bashaw and Cape Resorts, Inc. The series allows patrons to experience Broadway entertainers without paying those premium Broadway prices. On July 18, the series continues with the iconic Adam Pascal.
Pascal is an actor, a singer and a musician, best known for his performance as Roger Davis in the original cast of Rent on Broadway in 1996, the 2005 movie version of the musical and the Broadway Tour of Rent in 2009. He is also well known for his performances in Aida, Cabaret, the popular film School of Rock and most recently, as a star in the Broadway musical “Disaster!”
This Broadway rock-n-roller will be bringing a unique show to Cape May Stage with both original material and re-imagined Broadway classics such as “Maria” and “Maybe This Time.” The performance on July 18 will begin at 8 p.m. and is followed by an after party at The Washington Inn. Tickets for this event are $53.
Continuing a highly talked about run at Cape May Stage is Laura Eason’s “Sex with Strangers.” This play is a compelling comic drama about both intimacy and ambition. When Ethan, a successful twenty-something blogger, tracks down his idol, the gifted but obscure novelist Olivia, he finds they each crave what the other possesses. This sexy and provocative play about ambition, fame and lust poses the question, what would you do and who would you become to get what you want?
Award-winning director, producer, actor and producing artistic director of Cape May Stage, Roy Steinberg, directed the hit Off-Broadway play “Sex with Strangers,” created by House of Cards writer Laura Eason. Steinberg says, “Sex with Strangers is a dark romantic comedy that shines a light on dating in the digital age, while exploring what privacy means in the 21st century.” Steinberg chose this play not only because of its popularity, but because it raises questions about identity, art and ambition.
“Sex with Strangers” runs through July 29. There will be a half-price senior matinee on Saturday, July 16, and a post-show discussion with cast and crew on Saturday, July 23.
Tickets for both events are available through capemaystage.org or by calling (609) 770-8311.
