How well commas pair with friendship and sex is anyone’s guess, but the mystery will soon be debunked with the Off-Broadway premiere of Natalie Margolin’s The Power of Punctuation.
According to a recent press release, the synopsis is as follows:
Jenny, Fran, and Angie are best friends. They love each other. They have their own rules…their own language…their own way of surviving. A large white board dominates their living room. A huge clock dictates their every move. Their system is strict and serious. It’s 4 am. If the rules are broken, does the love remain?
The comedy opens this Friday, July 15th and runs through Saturday August 6th at the Davenport Theatre (West 45th between 8th and 9th) and is directed by Casey Griffin. It features Elizabeth Gambal (Fran), Rebecca Frisch (Angie), and Margolin (Jenny). The design team includes Matt Brogan (scenic), Lauren Levin (costumes), and Julia Weinberg (props).
Given the fact that Margolin-in an online interview-cited her favorite movie as Elf and shared a shattered dream of being a ballerina after her three year old self pooped in her tutu, there’s a good chance that audiences are in store for some big laughs.
