Is laughter really the best medicine? Audiences will soon find out as the first New York revival of Christopher Durang’s Beyond Therapy opens off-Broadway on March 25. The comedy will play through April 19 at the Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row.
Beyond Therapy is about the search for a meaningful relationship in an insane world. Prudence and Bruce are two urbanites seeking romance with the help of their psychiatrists, each of whom suggests the patients try personal ads. Discovering that the therapists may be more disturbed than Prudence and Bruce, complications ensue.
Beyond Therapy is directed by Scott Alan Evans and stars Mark Alhadeff, Cynthia Darlow, Jeffrey C. Hawkins, Liv Rooth, Karl Kenzler and Michael Schantz.
