John J. Burke directs the staging, which features <strong>Cranston as a widower author and Cranston's real-life wife, Robin Dearden, as his new love interest</strong>. Their actor pals Bill Timoney and Georgette Reilly play their on-stage pals.

According to the troupe, "In the semi-autobiographical <em>Chapter Two</em>, <strong>Cranston plays grieving widowed writer George Schneider</strong>, who unexpectedly meets his next match in Jennie Malone — a rocky midlife reawakening based largely on the romance and marriage of playwright Simon and actress Marsha Mason."
Performances play Pollak Theatre on the Monmouth University campus <strong>July 19-29</strong>, 400 Cedar Avenue, West Long Branch, NJ. Tickets are $35.

That's really neat! I wish I lived close enough to see! Let's see, that's relatively close to where Rye lives, isn't it? You should go Rye and give us a report! :)

It's about six hours from me. I could drive there in a day and I would but I've already put in for my vacation this summer and it's for two different weeks. :sad: If it was just a little closer to me, I could go for a weekend show.

Aww, but you're a doctor; don't you get as much time off as you want? :D:D

Remember Sam, I'm not a Doctor, I just work in a Doctor's office as a Practice Administrator. :) And unfortunately, since I'm not a Doctor, I don't get unlimited vacations. :sad: Still, maybe the play will come to Massachusetts or Connecticut. In that event, I could drive that distance, even after work, to see it. :)

From the way the articles reads - it going anywhere else seems doubtful - but one can hope..

Agreed. But you're right. It never hurts to hope.

Awesome news - glad to hear Bryan is doing well these days. Maybe if the show does well they will decide to take it on the road. You never know.

BTW, J. lives in NJ - we should make him go and report back. :D
