Spotlight Theatre offers another enjoyable evening of entertainment with BEAU JEST by James Sherman playing now through June 30. Sarah is a nice Jewish girl with a problem: her parents want her married to a nice Jewish boy. They have never met her boyfriend, a WASP executive named Chris Kringle. She tells them she is dating a Jewish doctor and they insist on meeting him. She plans a dinner party and, over the heated protests of Chris, employs an escort service to send her a Jewish date to be "Dr. Steinberg." Instead, they send Bob Schroeder, an aspiring actor who agrees to perform the impersonation. Happily, he is extremely convincing in the role and Sarah's parents are enraptured. Soon, even Sarah falls for Bob!
Under the direction of Katie Mangett, the cast includes Johanna Jaquith (Sarah Goldman), Dan Bray (Chris Cringle), Ben Cowhick (Bob Schroeder), Bonnie Greene (Joan Goldman), Emma Messenger (Miriam Goldman) and Dell Domnik (Abe Goldman).
Spotlight Theatre presents BEAU JEST delighting audiences now through June 30th. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m.; Sundays at 6:30 p.m. at The John Hand Theater, 7653 E. 1st Place in Denver, CO.
