Larry Biederman helm the production, which co-stars its authors. Performances of the play, which was formerly titled Assisted Living, are scheduled through Feb. 23. Opening night at the New Jersey venue is Jan. 31.
One of Your Biggest Fans, according to the George Street, "explores the surprising connections between four very different characters – Frank, a beloved soap opera star facing an uncertain future; Emily, his former makeup artist and longtime girlfriend; Edgar, a curmudgeon who feels abandoned in his assisted living facility; and Heather, Edgar’s unfulfilled, unmarried daughter who is Frank’s biggest fan. Holzman and Dooley’s play (their first full length collaboration) is a funny and touching look at the ways we can change each other’s lives – sometimes without even knowing it."
Creating the world of the play are scenic designer James Youmans, costume designer Esther Arroyo and lighting designer David Lander. Original sound designer Bob Blackburn’s design has been augmented with addition sound design by Ted Crimy.
