Produced by Robyn Goodman, Scott M. Delman and Amanda Lipitz, THE PERFORMERS, David West Read’s new romantic comedy, opened on Broadway on Wednesday, November 14th - at the Longacre Theatre. BroadwayWorld.com was there to cover all of the excitement of opening night and here is the cast celebrating at the show's opening night party!
THE PERFORMERS stars Cheyenne Jackson, Ari Graynor, Daniel Breaker and Jenni Barber, and also stars Alicia Silverstone and Henry Winkler. The Performers is directed by Evan Cabnet.
THE PERFORMERS is a romantic comedy set on the night of the Adult Film Awards. Lee (Mr. Breaker), a tabloid journalist, has come to Las Vegas to interview his high school friend, Mandrew (MR. Jackson), a hot new adult film star. Lee, who’s accompanied by his fiancée, Sara (Ms. Silverstone), first sees Mandrew as an exotic creature; but soon enough begins to question his own, more conservative lifestyle. Meanwhile, Sara is having doubts too, and she enlists Mandrew’s wife, Peeps (Ms. Graynor) -- also an adult film star -- to compare notes on intimacy and the fear of commitment. Awards, sequins, and Barry Manilow converge as everyone tries to navigate the ins, outs, ups and downs of relationships. Thank goodness Chuck Wood (Mr. Winkler), the hardest-working man in the business, is on hand to remind everyone that size matters . . . but love matters more.
