What happens? Laughs and more! Come see for yourself. This play will be directed by the talented Josh L. Hitchens.


"funny and engaging"

Dugald MacArthur of the Lantern Theatre Company wrote:"The play is quite enjoyable…. There are not many plays about infomercials but this one is funny and engaging. The charm of the play is the sheer looniness as the man and his companions struggle to stay on top of a situation that is rapidly growing out of control."

Cheltenham Art Center to feature premiere of
Fried-Cassorla's play, Info-Boy!,

August 17, 18, 24 & 25

Melrose Park, PA Melrose Park, PA - An infomercial executive invents the ultimate cure for depression -- BluesBusters. These are glasses that banish the blues permanently -- or do they?

Can sunlight and special glasses make you happier? See Info-Boy! and decide for yourself!

The serio-comic work will be given its world premiere this August at the Cheltenham Art Center. Performance dates are August 17, 18, 24 and 25 at 8 pm. Cheltenham Art Center is a prominent regional theater located in lower Montgomery County, just above Philadelphia. The play, Info-Boy! has been workshopped extensive through the Hedgerow Theatre and the Philadelphia Dramatists Center and has received favorable notices in staged readings.

In Info-Boy!, a middle-aged infomercial executive faces many conflicting pressures: the desire to be close to his adult daughter, a drive to make his newest venture succeed, and the passionate attentions of his producer/lover. BluesBusters are only his latest amazing venture. These are ultraviolet powered sunglasses that elevate peoples' moods. Cure or scam? The play lets you decide. Also included in the play are funny mini-infomercials, and an original audience-participation sing-along of the original tune, "Get Your New BluesBusters." While the play is satirical in many respects, it also includes serious character portraits, and presents complex business and relationship conflicts.
