    The Hilarious Kitchen-Sink Family Dramedy to Run February 1-17 at the Ghent Play

    The Ghent Playhouse kicks off the second-half of its 2018-2019 season with the hilarious kitchen-sink family dramedy Miracle on South Division Street. This heartwarming fictional story by Tom Dudzick was inspired by a real Buffalo, NY barber who claimed the Virgin Mary appeared to him and thus erected a 20-foot-tall statue in the neighborhood. Directed by Cathy Lee-Visscher, Miracle on South Division Street runs February 1-17. Tickets are on sale now at www.GhentPlayhouse.org.

    “At the heart of this show is family. Even though we catch them in a turbulent moment, there is still a lot of love there. Just look at the show’s premise; one sister calls a family meeting and everyone shows up,” explained actor Sam Reilly. “Even though they fight and get on each others nerves – they still show up for each other.”

    Meg Dooley stars as Clara, who has converted the famed barber shop into a soup kitchen and religiously tends to the shrine that the neighborhood sees as a beacon of hope in the midst of Buffalo’s urban blight. Sam Reilly, Jimmy, is a blue-collar guy with a secret of his own, and Christina Harrigan is Beverly, the frumpy eldest daughter. Sierra Lynch is Ruth, the middle child and an aspiring actress.

    Miracle on South Division Street at the Ghent Playhouse runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday, February 1-3, 8-10, and 15-17. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 8:00pm, while Sunday matinees begin at 2:00pm. Tickets are $22 general admission, $17 members, and $10 students. To order tickets, visit GhentPlayhouse.org or call 1-800-838-3006. The theatre is located at 6 Town Hall Place in Ghent, NY. For more information, visit GhentPlayhouse.org or call 518.392.6264. 

    “The family dynamics throughout this play are so relatable,” said Harrigan. “Just like a real family there are raw arguments, funny joking moments, heated discussions and sibling bickering. And of course, plenty sarcasm.”

    Author Tom Dudzick grew up in Buffalo and continues to live and work there. His plays focus on blue-collar descendants of immigrants who lived and died in the upstate city. Peter Kramer of the Journal News called Miracle on South Division Street, “A rollicking comedy where one revelation builds on another to an unexpected and thoroughly satisfying conclusion.”

    “The play is so well written,” Reilly said. “Almost the entire cast is on stage the entire show. Its one straight shot from start to finish; one scene. Its dialog the entire time and written very realistic and conversational. And it’s funny–not slap stick funny–just inherently funny. The family is trying to have a serious meeting but because they are all such characters themselves and the situation is so unexpected, the conversation they have is hilarious.”
