Teatromania presents the New York premiere of Nicola Saponaro’s play Weekend with a Killer April 3 through 18 at the Abingdon Theatre (312 West 36th St., 2nd Floor). Translated from Italian by Maureen Gonzalez, the play is directed by Vittorio Capotorto.
Weekend with a Killer is a romantic comedy with a dash of a Dame Agatha Christie crime novel. The two main characters, He and She, are from two very different stations of society. When they meet at the crossroads of life, each is faced with a decision that will irrevocably determine their futures.
The production stars Greek actress Louise Rheas, Deidre Brennan and Lucio Polosa.
Actres Louisa Rheas (Gina) was Born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden. After graduating from the Ballet Akademiet she moved to New York to pursue her acting career. Besides English plays, she has also done many Greek ethnic plays in the United States. She also appeared, in the TV soap opera “Lola” in Greece. Her enthusiasm and diversity brings her to work in all areas of the craft and she hopes to expand more in film as well as American theatre. This is her second collaboration with Teaotromania. The “Busboy” was the first play.
