The long-running Interactive musical comedy “Who Stole My Dead Husband?” returns to the stage for a nostalgic three-weekend run at the Cloverlane Mercantile & Event Center in Brush Prairie.
Presented by Love Street Playhouse of Woodland, “Who Stole My Dead Husband?”, written by Love Street’s own Lou Pallotta, closed in 2011 after a very successful seven-year run in Portland.
The return features some of the original cast including Lou Pallotta as Luigi Fishetti, and Sharon Mann of Vancouver as Concetta, the grieving widow, and features Dani Baldwin of Portland as Luigi’s daughter Angela, Dave Roberts of Vancouver as Johnny Boy Fratelli, Alex Lankford of Portland as Frankie Jr, Kim Dewey of Vancouver as Aunt Marie and will feature Alan King of Portland as Dominick Coletti, Bobby Jackson of Portland as The Mook and Wayne Yancey of Vancouver as Jimmy/Momma. The group will be joined on stage by Larry McCullough of Vancouver as Carlo Russo on the accordion.
Playing each Friday through Sunday with two shows on Saturdays, Sept. 15-Oct. 1. Tickets are $64 & $69, which includes a four-course Italian meal served Family Style, and are on sale at www.lovestreetplayhouse.com.
“Who Stole My Dead Husband?” is a tribute to growing up Brooklyn Italian and is touted as Portland’s longest-running theatre production spanning seven years (2004-2011). That run included performances around Oregon and Washington, including Spirit Mountain Casino and four months on the Portland Spirit. It’s four courses, 12 songs, a million laughs and one dead guy. This zany and hysterical interactive musical comedy dinner theatre production created by Lou Pallotta is a page in the life of growing up Brooklyn-Italian. It’s a toe-tapping, feel-good show that promises to have audience members laughing, singing, dancing and begging for more. The Dead Husband promises to be a great night out.
The show is about family, love, and reconciliation and at times like this what better way to celebrate and toast to a brighter future.
According to the playwright, “It’s a pill swallowed best with a glass of Chianti.”
Directed by Love Street’s Artistic Director Melinda Pallotta, who has assembled a creative team to support this effort including Bethany Pithan of Longview as musical director, Alex Girard of La Center as stage manager and Bobby Pallotta designing lights and sound.
