Cedar Falls - "Oster Regent Theatre announces auditions for its upcoming production of 6 Rms Riv Vu
Auditions: May 21 & 27 @ 7pm
Rehearsals start later in June
Performances July 25, 26 & Aug 2, 3
Directed by: Joe Frenna
6 Rms Riv Vu derives its title from shorthand used by real estate agents in classified advertising. In this case a six-room apartment with a view of the Hudson River located on Manhattan's Riverside Drive serves as the comedy-drama's setting. Paul Friedman is a married advertising copywriter. Anne Miller is a discontented housewife and the two meet when they respond to a New York Time's listing for the available unit. They discover the door has been locked accidentally, trapping them inside, and a connection slowly develops as they begin to share the details of their respective lives. Jerry Orbach and Jane Alexander created the roles on Broadway for this Tony Award-winning play. Savor romance and comedy at its best in this summer treat.
