The Marriage of Bette and Boo is an illuminating, hilariously dark dissection of marriage and the family in contemporary America by theatre’s master satirist. Conveyed in a series of dazzlingly inventive interconnected scenes, the play moves wickedly on through three decades of divorce, alcoholism, and madness—all with farcical brilliance.

Appearing in the cast are: Kevin Albanese of Woodbridge as Matt; Alicia Harabin of Somerville as Bette Brennan; Bobby Marusiefski of Rahway as Boo Hudlocke; Nancy Jean McBride of Bernardswille as Margaret Brennan; J.D. Robinson of Highland Park as Paul Brennan; Kate Murray of Somerville as Joan Brennan; Adriana Spizuoco of West Orange as Emily Brennan; Lewis Decker of Millington as Karl Hudlocke; Alison Byrne of Metuchen as Soot Hudlocke; Bob Dumpert of Franklin as Father Donnally.

Please be advised: due to the unique layout of this theater in the round, latecomers cannot be seated after the performance has started. Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before curtain.
