Boca Stage Presents Grand Horizons
A Hilarious Comedy
Boca Stage is proud to present Grand Horizons, a hilarious Tony nominated play by Bess Wohl. Filled with solid laughs and sharp one-liners, the play explores a family turned upside down by divorce. Fifty years into their marriage, Bill and Nancy want to call it quits! While they seem unfazed by the decision, the family must grapple with their new reality in an uproarious fashion. Featuring a robust array of talent, the play stars Michael Gioia, Lourelene Snedeker, Jacqueline Laggy, Angie Radosh, Wayne LeGette and Jordon Armstrong, and is directed by Genie Croft. Grand Horizons runs February 10 through February 26, 2023, with a preview on February 9. Tickets are on sale for $45, and $50 for Sunday matinees. Thursday preview, Friday and Saturday evenings are an 8 pm curtain, Saturday and Sunday matinees are 2pm. Reserve your seat at www.bocastage.net or by calling 561-300-0152.
“Entertaining, heartfelt, full of all the complexities and conundrums of family life, this play will make you laugh while inviting you to ponder your own experiences,” said Genie Croft, Director. “These six talented actors bring this family to life in hysterical and totally relatable fashion!”
The plot follows Bill and Nancy, who practically breathe in unison; they anticipate each other’s sighs, sneezes, and ends of sentences. But now, they want to end their relationship. As their two adult sons struggle to cope with the news, they’re forced to question everything they assumed about the people they thought they knew best. Sophisticated, funny, and sometimes provocatively honest, this new hit comedy takes an intimate look at the unpredictable and enduring nature of love.
