The Abingdon Theatre Company presents Mary Willard's Elvis and Juliet, directed by Yvonne Conybeare. College sweethearts Juliet Jones and Elvis Lesley's upcoming nuptials will soon face the truest test of love -- watching their two families come together for the first time. Juliet is from a family of conservative Connecticut academics; Elvis, a flamboyant Las Vegas clan of "tribute artists." Elvis and Juliet is a comedy about culture clash, family values, and a little hunka-hunka burning love.
The production stars TV and film funnyman Fred Willard (Best in Show, Everybody Loves Raymond) as "The King" of the Lesley clan, and David Rasche (Current Film: The Sentinel; TV's Sledge Hammer, Moonlight and Magnolias) as his Rat Pack-lovin' brother.
