Out of the Box Theatre Company will continue its 2021-22 season with an Actors’ Equity Association–approved showcase production of the contemporary classic The Cemetery Club by Ivan Menchell.
The Cemetery Club tells the story of three Jewish widows who accompany one another once a month to a local cemetery in Forest Hills, Queens, where their husbands are buried. When the ladies run into Sam, a local butcher visiting his wife’s grave at the same cemetery, a romance seems to be in the making as Ida and Sam fall for each other. Ida’s two friends and fellow “club members” don’t support Ida’s romance with Sam, complicating things a bit.
The cast includes Amelia V. Anderson, Susanne Brinnitzer, Georgia Buchanan*, Susan Case*, and Wayne Joseph*.
The production is directed by SDC member Jennifer Sherron Stock.
Michelle Guiot is the stage manager. Costumes are by Katherine Roberson, with sound design by Zachary Dornfeld and scenic design by Juliana Acevado. The production team is Halina Malinowski, Lin Snider and Kelly Gilmore.
ASL Interpreters: Cathy Markland & Susanne Morgan – Morrow
DASL: April Cheng
