The Honeymooners Play

​Celsk Benefit Promotions

June 28, 2015
Showtimes:
June 28, 2:00pm

“Honeymooners, the Golden Age of Television” revisits the era that made Jackie Gleason and Art Carney stars of television. Told through the lens of the popular series, the Honeymooners, this production looks at their lasting friendship and the work they accomplished together.

The curmudgeonly Ralph Cramden and lovable Ed Norton bring out the laughs as the show is seen being shot in the New York television studio. Alternating between the studio and Jackie’s favourite bar, this funny yet touching script is written by Sharyl Hudson and directed by Peter Muir with musical direction by Bill Sewers. Starring Alex Ryker as Jackie Gleason and Dan Anderson as Art Carney, a cast of characters brings the story to life.
"There was little rehearsal. Gleason liked it that way...and there were no second takes. The show went out "live". The sets were painted cardboard (with the only set of apartment doors that opened "outwards" instead of "inwards). Nobody imagined this short run series of half-hour episodes would rerun continuously everywhere in the world on television for the next 50 years...."
Come see Jackie and Art set the early television world on fire with comedy, music and song with this unique production.
