The Belmont Theater on stage NOW AND THEN
Hang out at an Irish bar…opening March 18 at the Belmont Theatre! NOW AND THEN is a comedy-drama by Sean Grennan. The play takes place in an Irish-themed bar built by our very own head carpenter, Joel Persing. Come join the Belmont for a stimulating play from March 18-20 and March 24-27. The play is directed by Christine Koslosky and is sponsored by THE GRAHAM COMPANIES. Visit www.thebelmont.org for tickets.
The cast includes Curtis Nelson as MAN, Mike McGuiness as JAMIE, Jessica Oakhem as ABBY and Becky Wilcox as WOMAN. Paul Lajkowicz is a manager.
Sometimes what happens after the last call can change your life. One evening in 1981, as Jamie closes the bar where he works, a desperate last-minute customer offers him and his girlfriend Abby two thousand dollars to sit down and have a drink with him. Who wouldn’t take it? As the trio swap stories and Jamie reflects on the decisions he faces regarding his music career and his future with girlfriend Abby.
The young couple begins to realize that this older man is exceptionally invested in their choices…and the reason he gives them is completely unbelievable. But when a second, very disgruntled stranger arrives, the unbelievable begins to look like what might just be true. Now and Then is a heartfelt romantic comedy about the cost of the choices we make and the people who make them with us.
