Different Stages presents Arsenic and Old Lace
Different Stages opens its 2013-2014 season with the classic comedy Arsenic and Old Lace. Drama critic Mortimer Brewster must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves. His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken  to relieving the loneliness of old men by inviting them in for a nice glass of homemade elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and "just a pinch" of cyanide. Add to the mix his two brothers - one who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, and one who is a serial killer. Toss in a police officer who thinks he's a playwright, sprinkle in a few corpses and you have one of the most hilarious and enduring comedies in American theater. The New York Times called Arsenic and Old Lace "so funny that none of us will ever forget it."!

Directed by Norman Blumensaadt (Night Must Fall) Arsenic and Old Lace features Jennifer Underwood (Well) and Karen Jambon (The Skin of Our Teeth) as the Brewster sisters. Tyler Jones (Little Shop of Horrors) plays Mortimer and Sara Danko plays his fiancĂ©. His brother Teddy is played by Joe Hartman (Quills) and his gangster brother Jonathan is played by Steven Fay. Also in the cast are Mick D'Arcy, Andy Brown, and Sebastian Garcia  (You Can't Take it with You), Porter Gandy(Good People) Mike Dellens and Grayson Little.
