The Prisoner of Second Avenue Benefit Performance

April 28, 2020; 7:30pm

Englewood Helping Hands Benefit Show CancelledComedy by Neil Simon, Directed by Richard LeVene

Mel Edison is a well-paid executive of a high-end Manhattan firm, which has suddenly hit the skids, and he gets the ax. His wife Edna takes a job to tide them over, then she too is sacked. Compounded by the air-pollution killing his plants, and with the walls of the apartment being paper-thin, allowing him a constant earful of his neighbors’ private lives, things can’t seem to get any worse. Then he’s robbed, and his psychiatrist dies with $23,000 of his money. Mel does the only thing left for him to do ‒ he has a nervous breakdown and it’s the best thing that ever happened to him.
The cast members for The Prisoner of Second Avenue are Joanie Anton (Pauline), Gloria Bandy (Edna), Marilyn Barton (Pearl), Jim Manns (Mel), Bob La Salle (Harry), and Loretta Zullo (Jessie)

Due to illness Gary Seddon will not be directing The Prisoner  of Second Avenue as planned. We were fortunate enough to get Richard LeVene as a replacement. Richard is a former chair of theatre at Florida Southern College and a professional actor for many years. He is extremely qualified to take the reins of this production.
