Impersonation leads to complications


May 17, 2001|By J. Wynn Rousuck

The Vagabond Players wraps up its 85th-anniversary season with James Sherman's hit off-Broadway comedy, "Beau Jest," opening tomorrow.

Deborah Desmone plays Sarah Goldman, a nice Jewish girl afraid to tell her parents that the man she plans to marry is gentile. Instead, she hires an actor (portrayed by Jim Handakas, a veteran of the off-Broadway show and the director of the Vagabonds' production) to impersonate a beau who will meet with their approval - a Jewish doctor. Though the charade succeeds, complications ensue.

Show times at the Vagabonds, 806 S. Broadway, are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays and 7 p.m. June 10. The show runs through June 17. Tickets are $12. Call 410-563-9135.
