New York City
Closing Aurora Theatre Company’s 17th season is Bob Glaudini’s quirky comedy Jack Goes Boating. This modern take on old-fashioned romance finds lovable slacker Jack enlisting the aid of his two best friends to win the girl of his dreams. The plan: Cook one perfect gourmet meal to impress her, and learn how to swim so that he can take her for a boat ride in Central Park- never mind that it’s the middle of winter, and that Jack has never cooked a meal in his life. As obstacles mount, the inner workings of two love affairs are etched out in laughter in this charming portrait of four New York eccentrics.
