BERGEN COUNTY PLAYERS PRESENTS IT’S ONLY A PLAY
A BROADWAY COMEDY ABOUT THE COMEDY OF BROADWAY

Oradell, NJ, April 30, 2018 - Bergen County Players (BCP) continues its 85th season with It’s Only A Play, written by Award-Winning playwright Terrence McNally and directed by Peter Colletto. It’s Only A Play will run May 5th through June 3rd, with curtain at 8 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 pm on Sundays. There will be no performances May 13th or May 25th – 27th.

Terrence McNally’s It’s Only A Play is a cleverly set play within a play. At the opening night party for the Broadway play The Golden Egg, the producer, playwright, and the lead actor, as well as an entourage of characters, anxiously await the late-night reviews of the performance. With not much else to do to pass the time, everyone exchanges juicy gossip, name-drops celebrities who attended the performance, and chat about the theatre. When The Golden Egg receives bad reviews, the party refuses to be discouraged and begin planning for their next “sure to be a hit!”  The real New York Times called it “hilariously, sidesplittingly funny….These are among the funniest lines to roll off a stage in years….IT’S ONLY A PLAY deserves a rave.”

It’s Only A Play features Anthony Ventola of Oradell (as Peter Austin), John Kiely of Allendale (as James Wicker), Janet Gaynor-Matonti of River Edge (as Virginia Noyes), Jeanmarie Garver-Gaydos of River Edge (as Julia Budder), Michael Del Valle of New Milford (as Frank Finger), Dan Loverro of Parsippany (as Gus P. Head) and Larry Shagawat of Clifton (as Ira Drew).

The crew of It’s Only A Play includes Peter Colletto (Director), Kathleen Ruland (Producer), Michele Roth (Stage Manager), Joanne Misha (Assistant to the Director), Lynne Lupfer (Set Designer and Decor), Jody Laufer (Set Builder), Alan Seward (Lighting Design, Rob DeScherer (Sound Design), Katie Lupfer (Costumes), Cliff Dreispan(Lighting Operation), Adam Mahonchak (Sound Operation), Susan Faccone and Judy Rosenberg (Props), Ron Siclari (Crew), Alan Shoop (Program Notes), Alan Zenreich (Photography), Jenn Cottone (Publicity Mentor), Chloe Nevill (Publicity) and Janica Carpenter Member-at-Large).
