Lemon Bay Playhouse Presents “I Ought to Be in Pictures”
Published: April 13, 2017
The Lemon Bay Playhouse announces its upcoming show, “I Ought to Be in Pictures”. The play, the sixth production of the season, was written by Neil Simon and will be directed by Ron Bupp. The show will run from April 26 through May 14, 2017.
This play tells a touching story about Herb, a Hollywood screenwriter currently between “gigs” and suffering from writer’s block, is surprised when his past reappears in the form of Libby, his estranged young daughter from Brooklyn. She has made the trek cross country with dreams of movie stardom. With encouragement from Steffy, his once a week girlfriend at his side, Herb decides to take another stab at fatherhood and hopefully this time, get it right.
The director, Ron, remarks that the relationship between Herb and his estranged daughter Libby are very human and at time very tender. He was fortunate in casting three talented actors for this production. It has been a privilege to work with them as well as a fine stage manager and back stage crew in bringing this production to our stage. Be sure to get a good seat by booking early to see this show.
