The Villagers Theatre presents "Cactus Flower" directed by
Carla Zackson-Heller and produced by Bryan Murray. Performances will be held on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and on Sundays at 2 p.m.
In this witty romantic comedy, Julian Winston, a middle-aged Park Avenue dentist (and an attractive bachelor) tells his much younger girlfriend, Toni, that he’s already married, in order to avoid commitment. Then, unexpectedly and in a moment of weakness, Julian promises to leave his wife for Toni. When Toni insists on meeting the wife, Julian recruits his introverted, prickly assistant to pose as his fictitious spouse. This ingenious plan further complicates the complications he has already created, while inadvertently cultivating the sandy soil in which love might blossom unexpectedly. The 1969 movie version of this classic comedy featured Goldie Hawn in her first major film role.
