Jason Alexander Returns to the Stage in The Portuguese Kid
Sherie Rene Scott and Mary Testa also star in John Patrick Shanley's new play.
Jason Alexander returns to the stage in John Patrick Shanley's new play, The Portuguese Kid. The Manhattan Theater Club production opens October 24, and the first footage has just been released.
Shanley himself directs a cast led by Alexander, alongside Aimee Carrero, Pico Alexander, Sherie Rene Scott, and Mary Testa.
The Portuguese Kid is described as follows: "In Providence, Rhode Island, habitually widowed Atalanta (Scott) pays a visit to her second-rate lawyer, Barry Dragonetti (Alexander). Intending to settle her latest husband's affairs, this larger-than-life Greek tightwad quickly becomes a nightmare for her cheesy, self-aggrandizing attorney. Add Barry's impossible Croatian mother (Testa), a dash of current politics, and a couple of opportunistic young lovers, and you have in hand a recipe for comic combustion."
