I have not written to you often in the past year, but now I have something very special to tell you. And that is to announce the premiere of my new comedy-drama, Info-Boy! It's a play about a direct marketer (a rarity in itself) -- but more importantly, it will be a stimulating and fun evening of theater for you.
Info-Boy! concerns a man who invents depression-curing glasses called BluesBusters, and his relationship with his family and business associates. On a philosophical level, it's also about how we color our own realities. Please read more below and let me know if you'd like to attend.
P.S. As a theatergoer, you'll keep your very own pair of BluesBusters!

What's Info-Boy! about?
This is a comedy-drama about a man who invents depression-curing glasses called BluesBusters and who promotes them through infomercials. Do they work? Hmm. Meanwhile, his daughter and girlfriend need attention and investors want profits.
What happens? Laughs and more! Come see for yourself. This play will be directed by the talented Josh L. Hitchens.
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."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Fried-Cassorla's play, Info-Boy!,
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.
