Presented by Stanley Brown, John Finocchio and SJ Productions, Inc., Viagara Falls begins performances at the Little Shubert Theatre Tuesday, July 6th. Opening night is Wednesday, July 21st. Directed by Don Crichton (“The Carol Burnett Show”), Viagara Falls features a trio of TV, stage and film veterans: Bernie Kopell (“The Love Boat”), Teresa Ganzel (“The Tonight Show,” “Teachers Only”), and Lou Cutrell (original Broadway productions of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, Little Me).
Charley and Moe are widowers, war buddies and life-long pals. For his 77th birthday, rather than sitting around listening to old Sinatra records, Charley decides that he and Moe need one more crack at sowing some wild oats. Moe is wary, but with the help of one loopy lady of the evening and some black market blue pills, Charlie and Moe are in for the birthday party of their lives.
