Extra!, Extra! Read All About It: CT Rep Presents His Girl Friday

Connecticut Repertory Theatre (CRT) will present John Guare’s adaptation of His Girl Friday, Feb. 28 – March 10 in the Nafe Katter Theatre, Storrs.

His Girl Friday is an all American rat-a-tat comedy adapted from the film starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Rusell, directed by Dale AJ Rose.

It’s August 1939 in the Press Room of the Criminal Courts Building in Chicago. On the world stage Hitler is about to invade Poland, but tonight Hildy Johnson (Olivia Saccomanno) just wants to bid farewell to her old pals, get married and leave the newspaper racket behind. Her hard-boiled editor and ex-husband Walter Burns (UConn alum Christopher Hirsh) wants to keep her on the beat and in his life, however. With rapid-fire dialogue and a crackling conflict, His Girl Friday remains one of our wildest, wittiest whirlwinds of American romantic comedy.

Guest artist Kevin Crouch plays Bruce Baldwin, the bumbling insurance salesman Hildy wants to marry.

Please call 860-486-2113 for tickets or for more information. Please call or visit the box office for specific show dates and times because performance schedules vary and are subject to change. Tickets available online at www.crt.uconn.edu.
