HANDLE WITH CARE
CONCLUDES ITS RUN
March 9, 2014
“A Hilarious and Heartwarming Romantic Comedy” That
“Exudes Gobs Of Comic Energy And Insight” – New York Times
The hit romantic comedy Handle With Care, a Critics’ Pick from the New York Times, which calls it “A Hilarious and Heartwarming Romantic Comedy” that “exudes gobs of comic energy and insight,” will conclude its run at the Westside Theatre March 9, 2014. The play, which has been called The Must See Jewish Show Of The Millennium, is written by Emmy® Award nominee Jason Odell Williams, and is directed by Karen Carpenter (“Love, Loss and What I Wore”), will have played 112 performances including 15 previews.
Handle With Care is the “utterly charming” new romantic comedy that tells the story of a young Israeli woman who reluctantly travels with her grandmother to America. Fate and hilarious circumstances bring together the young woman, who has little command of English, and a young American man with little command of romance.
Is their inevitable love an accident?
Or destiny generations in the making?
The play, which already had numerous regional productions before its Off-Broadway premiere, is in consideration at over 60 theatres internationally, including upcoming productions this year in Los Angeles and Canada. Producers Charlotte Cohn and Douglas Denoff said, “We always knew that “Handle With Care” was a regional darling, and we are very gratified that New York audiences have also embraced the show with love. We look forward to its continued success in theatres around the world.”
