Manhattan Theatre Club will soon present world premiere of The Portuguese Kid, a new play written and directed by Tony, Pulitzer Prize, and Academy Award winner John Patrick Shanley, appearing as part of MTC’s upcoming 2017-2018 season.
Tony Award winner Jason Alexander (six-time Emmy Award nominee for “Seinfeld,” Jerome Robbins’ Broadway, Merrily We Roll Along) is joined by Pico Alexander (Punk Rock, What I Did Last Summer), three-time Tony Award nominee Sherie Rene Scott (The Front Page, Whorl Inside a Loop, Everyday Rapture), Drama Desk Award winner Mary Testa (The Government Inspector, First Daughter Suite, Queen of the Mist) and Aimee Carrero (Young and Hungry, Elena of Avalor).
The Portuguese Kid will begin previews September 19, 2017 ahead of an October 24, 2017 opening night at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street).
In Providence, Rhode Island, habitually widowed Atalanta (Sherie Rene Scott) pays a visit to her second-rate lawyer Barry Dragonetti (Jason Alexander). Intending to settle her latest husband’s affairs, this larger-than-life Greek tightwad quickly becomes a nightmare for her cheesy, self-aggrandizing attorney. Add Barry’s impossible Croatian mother (Mary Testa), a dash of current politics and a couple of opportunistic young lovers, and you have in hand a recipe for comic combustion.
This feisty romantic comedy could only come from John Patrick Shanley, the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the MTC hits Doubt and Outside Mullingar, and the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Moonstruck.
Aimee was on Good Morning America today for their Disney’s Day of Giving. Just another reason to adore her.
You can watch a segment from her interview here or on Hulu. The whole episode of Good Morning America was great and inspiring today. If you just want to watch Aimee’s part on Hulu you can jump to 46:45. I have added screencaps and stills to the gallery. Enjoy.
I added high quality images of Aimee from D23: The Disney Expo. She’s looked lovely. Today was her birthday so be sure to say happy birthday before the night is over!
I’ve added a bunch of missing photos to the gallery that I had sitting on my computer and have been meaning to add to the site. I’ve also replaced all the screencaptures of Aimee from Blue Lagoon: The Awakening with high quality ones. Enjoy!
I’ve added a bunch of new photos to the gallery from Aimee on Young and Hungry. I love this series so much! It just gets better and better every week. Big thanks to my lovely friend Angela at Emily Osment Online for the high quality photos. Be sure to visit her site if you are a fan of Emily Osment who plays Gabi on Young and Hungry.
