Lifting the curtain on Caldwell's summer lineup

Boca Raton's Caldwell Theatre Company, which will wind up its first regular season in the spiffy new $10 million Count de Hoernle Theatre with a production of Tuesdays With Morrie, doesn't plan to let that expensive real estate stay dormant over the summer.

Doubt Its three-show summer lineup begins June 20-July 6 with Pete 'n' Keely, a musical about singing sweethearts who reunite for a live television show in 1968 after not speaking for five years.  Carbonell Award winner Connie SaLoutos plays Keely in the musical by James Hindman.

John Patrick Shanley's Pulitzer Prize-winning Doubt, the play that inaugurated the Caldwell's new home in December, returns Aug. 1-17 with the same cast:  Amy Montminy, Pat Nesbit, Terry Hardcastle (pictured at left) and Pat Bowie, nominated for a Carbonell Award for her performance in the play.

Last is David C. Hyer's Lying in State, a crazy comedy that skewers politicians.  Though probably no moreso than they manage to skewer themselves. It runs Sept. 5-21.  The Caldwell is offering tickets to a single play or the option of two- or three-show subscriptions. One play costs $34 or $38; two are $60 or $70; three are $84 or $93, depending on seat location.  For information, call 561-241-7432, 1-877-245-7432 or visit the Caldwell web site.
