There is something tremendous about seeing classic TV legends Kathy Garver (Cissy from Family Affair), Larry Thomas (The Soup Nazi from Seinfeld), Caryn Richman (Gidget from The New Gidget) and Christopher Knight (Peter Brady from The Brady Bunch) on stage performing live and together in the new play, Dinner At Five, written and directed by Lloyd J. Schwartz (Gilligan’s Island/The Brady Bunch).
The cast’s combined years of experience in film, on television and in the theatre becomes immediately and abundantly clear as each performer proves their comedic flair with this delightful “Dinner.”
One-liners, zingers, a raised eyebrow here and there, and surprises galore are presented with entertaining ease by this repertoire of pros who recite with both rapid and at times perfectly timed reserved repore both the prose and poetry of Schwartz’s clever words.
The talent from on and behind the stage, along with the charming nostalgia of just seeing these actors live, combined with the added mix of a contemporary twist, makes Dinner At Five a feast for the eyes and ears.
“Starring four familiar faces from 70's and 80's television, experiencing the play is a bit of a time warp, but much like Televisionland, it wafts us back to a gentler time, and provides an enjoyable evening out.” - Broadway World
