Jimmy and Carolyn

A true-to-life world premiere play, Jimmy and Carolyn is a funny, honest, and sometimes ironic piece centering around James and William, a gay couple trying to enjoy life in their Rhode Island beach house when they receive a rather unwarranted visit from James’s parents, Jimmy and Carolyn. 

A passion project from playwright James Andrew Walsh (who cowrote the Broadway-bound Liberace bio-musical All That Glitters), Jimmy and Carolyn exposes dark truths about what it means to be a family, how to make sense of irreconcilable memories of the past, and the choices to make moving forward.

The cast includes Lisa Harrow (Off-Broadway’s Wit), Brad Bradley (Spamalot, Billy Elliot, Annie Get Your Gun), Luis Carlos de La Lombana (La Vida Inesperada, Gal), and Sam Tsoutsouvas (By Jeeves, The Immigrant).

Directed by Brooke Ciardelli, the play will be opening Queens Theatre’s 29th Season after being developed as part of Queens Theatre’s New American Voices Project.

Jimmy and Carolyn plays through October 1 at Queens Theatre. To buy tickets, visit QueensTheatre.org
