James Kirkwood’s “Legends” comes to Historic Folsom at Sutter Street Theatre. The show directed by Mike Jimena opens Saturday, March 15.
Eager beaver producer Martin Klemmer, a wheeler-dealer if ever there was one, has uncovered a terrific commercial script – “Star Wars: The Play.” Since he has produced only one Off Broadway project, something called “Craps,” Martin’s calls are not being returned by the powerful Broadway magnates capable of getting this play to the Great White Way.Martin needs names, names like film legends Sylvia Glenn and Leatrice Monsee for the leads. If Martin can sign them he can get the money. Unfortunately, they hate each other.
Will Martin be able to resolve this titanic dilemma? Will “Star Wars: The Play” hit the big time? And, if Sylvia and Leatrice do agree to appear together, will Paul Newman sign on, too? This hilarious comedy is by the author of “P.S. Your Cat Is Dead” and “A Chorus Line,” which starred Carol Channing and Mary Martin in a national tour.
“Legends” performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 4 p.m. Sundays through April 13 at Sutter Street Theatre, 717 Sutter St. in Folsom. Tickets are $23 general, $21 seniors, $18 students with an ID Card, $15 children 12 and younger. There is a discount of $2 per ticket for groups of 10 or more.
