Hollywood comes to Hatboro!

Hatboro, PA 3/17/2016 The Village Players of Hatboro are thrilled to be the site of the East Coast premiere of Emmy Award winning television writer Ken Levine’s two-person play, A or B? opening on April 1st.

Ken Levine is a writer, director and producer in the television and film industry, and an author. Levine has worked on a number of television series, including M*A*S*H, Cheers (for which he shared Outstanding Comedy Series honors at the 35th Primetime Emmy Awards), Frasier, The Simpsons, Wings, Everybody Loves Raymond, Becker, and Dharma and Greg. Along with his writing partner David Isaacs, he created the series Almost Perfect. Mr. Levine was also the co-writer of the feature films Volunteers and Mannequin Two: On the Move.

Directed by Gina Lutz, and starring Jen Newby as Abby Morgan and Ernie Albanesius as Ben Steele, A or B? follows Abby and Ben through two possible relationships- lovers and coworkers- and what happens when they chose A or B.

Mr. Levine will be attending the performance the 2nd weekend, and will be doing an audience talk back after the show on the 9th of April. This is an excellent chance for anyone who’s ever wanted to hear an insider’s point of view about the behind-the-scenes world of television and movies, and what goes in to writing comedy, be it for film, theatre, or television.

In the six decades since its founding in 1947, The Village Players of Hatboro have been a staple of the Montgomery County community, producing 4 regular season productions every year. Our season runs October through June. We also usually have some form of a summer production (one-acts, children’s theater, dramatic readings, musical showcases) that runs one or two weekends. Our plays are usually a comedy, drama, mystery, or a farce.
