Season 2019 Begins!   New Romantic Comedy: Things My Mother Taught Me.

If you’re looking for the perfect “date night” to complete your Valentine’s Day plans, you need look no further than the new Romantic Comedy opening in the VK Garage Theater this Friday.
Things My Mother Taught Me runs this weekend through Sunday, February 17th.
Dana Williams and Sydney Blain are mother and daughter in THINGS MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME.

In this play, which has been described in the press as “superbly written,” “lovable,” and “a show with heart and humor,” we catch up with Olivia and Gabe, a young couple moving into their first apartment together, a long way from home. Their moving day is complicated by a large easy chair jammed in their front door – and the unexpected arrival of all four of their well-meaning parents.

The script is the latest offering by young playwright Katherine DiSavino, an award winning writer for stage, television and film. Named “one of the top 100 writers in Hollywood,” DiSavino has become one of the most popular playwrights in the country, and theatrical critics have called her work “true-to-life,” and “entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny.”

The cast for Things My Mother Taught Me includes Playhouse 2000 veterans Colton VanFossen and Sydney Blain as the young couple starting a new life together. Award-winning actresses Barbara French and Dana Williams are their moms “Lydia” and “Karen,” and P2K regular Justin Radkiewicz is “Max,” the couple’s new building super.
