Let's Pretend We're Famous

What do you do when you expect several stars to make guest appearances on your show and receive response after response expressing regrets along with a “And by the way, who ARE you?” Stumped?  If you are Tony Braithwaithe or Jennifer Childs, you turn to each other and say, “Let’s pretend we’re famous.” (After all, the show must go on.) Let’s Pretend We’re Famous is being presented by 1812 Productions at Plays and Players Theatre, 1714 Delancey Street. Smart, sassy and sensational, this production by Philadelphia’s All Comedy Theatre Company is scheduled to run through March 25. Jennifer Childs, artistic director and co-founder of 1812 Productions and Tony Braithwaite, multiple Barrymore nominee and winner, have collaborated on a variety of shows since 2000. Their sense of timing is spot-on. Flashing from one parody to the next without a breath is a mind-numbing task, but both Jen and Tony accomplish this with ease. Their performances are brilliant. Their rich voices, their dazzling smiles, the twinkle in their eyes and their comments allow members of the audience to feel that they are in on the jokes too. In keeping with the theory that everyone is entitled to his 15 minutes of fame, a member of the audience is chosen to participate in a short conversation, after which his 15 minutes begins, with both Jen and Tony taking phrases from his aforementioned conversation and parlaying it into a 15 minute side-splitting sketch on the rise and fall of a celebrity. Songs with original lyrics, songs in parody, dance routines, impressions…Jennifer and Tony do it all. For more information or tickets for this remarkably entertaining show call 215-592-9560 or visit online at www.1812productions.org.
