Renowned playwright Jerry Mayer turned 90 on September 5, 2021, his pen and wit sharp as ever. Currently completing his 11th play, he took time to revisit the acclaimed musical he wrote with son Steve. Now, the Santa Monica Playhouse premiere of this brand-new incarnation of the riotous and poignant musical is extended, April 30 - June 26, 2022.
"Heartfelt look at three married couples in their 60s and their personal and senior moment-induced tribulations." LA Times From the hilarious Role Reversal Tango, to the tongue-firmly-in-cheek tribute to the not-so-firm Upper Arms of the over 60s set, to the heart-wrenching Whatever Happened to Our Love Song, the Mayer team's brilliance shines brightly on the trials and tribulations of "aging" - lovingly dissected, shredded, massaged and put back together again, through the eyes of three married couples – Jewish, Italian, Irish - who have known each other for over 35 years. It's time for a renewal of vows. But much has changed…perhaps too much? Will all three couples make it to the altar again? Only time, and the Mayer team, will tell.
"Uproarious! Get ready to giggle, chuckle and downright guffaw!" SPLASH MAGAZINES Helmed by Playhouse Artistic Director Chris DeCarlo (director of 9 of Mayer's 10 plays to date), LIES features a stellar cast including Mayer production alumni Rachel Galper (A DeLUSIONAL Affair, Turning Thirty), Kyle T. Heffner (Facts of Life, Mistakes Were Made, Sense8). Barbara Keegan (NCIS: Los Angeles, Saving Mr. Banks, Emmy-award winner), Evelyn Rudie (A Love Affair, Climax), and DeCarlo (Author! Author! an evening with Sholom Aleichem, Almost Perfect), with newcomer to the Mayer catalogue Tom Van Dyke (Razzle Dazzle, The Van Dyke Bros blues/rock band, The Naked Apes). Santa Monica Playhouse programs are supported in part by the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Commission.
