3 To Do: Players latest, boating skills and DC politics
1. Marco Players: ‘Come Blow Your Horn’
The Marco Players honor the memory of playwright Neil Simon, master of Broadway comedy and a prolific writer for stage and screen with this production of “Come Blow Your Horn” (1963).
Set in the early 60s in New York City, a set of aging parents (Len Becker and Karen Ezrine) watch their sons, Alan (Jesse Heindl), a 30-ish swinging bachelor and eager younger brother Buddy (Elijah Bettencourt) grow into adult life while having access to too much time, money and women (Tracy Lane). What can a parent do but watch and pray?
The show is on stage Jan. 2-20 at The Marco Players Theater, Marco Town Center Mall, 1089 N. Collier Blvd., Marco Island, FL. Shows are Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. Attend the first week of the show and automatically be entered in a drawing to win a dinner cruise for two on The Marco Island Princess.
