The Foreigner is a hilarious, two-act comedy, written by American playwright Larry Shue. It was the first show directed by Danny Mininni when he came to Puerto Vallarta 10 years ago. For Danny, ‘The Foreigner’s’ success made him realize that GREAT entertainment in PV was possible. “What better way to celebrate Act II’s 5th anniversary than to bring back the play that started it all!”
‘The Foreigner’ is the story of two guests, Charlie Baker and Staff Sergeant Froggy LeSueur, at a resort-style fishing lodge in rural Georgia. Charlie is depressed because his beloved wife may be dying. To help his friend, Froggy tells Betty Meeks (who owns the lodge), that Charlie is the native of an exotic country and doesn’t understand a word of English. Betty, who has never traveled, is delighted to cater to a stranger who is “as foreign as the day is long.” Before long, things start to go sideways, as Charlie finds himself listening to assorted secrets and scandals freely discussed in front of him by the other visitors. Charlie must appear to “learn” English quickly and think on his feet if he wants to save his new friends and the lodge.
‘The Foreigner’ stars Alex McLauchlan as the charming foreigner, Charlie. “I never thought I’d meet another actor GOOD ENOUGH to play the part of Charlie until I met Alex,” says the director, Danny Mininni. This show also features Act II veteran actress, Cherry DeLorenzo, along with the talented Maria Rose, Shawn Morgan, Branden Hayes, Al Carswell, and Ocean Olson.
‘The Foreigner’ is a fantasy of good and evil, with comedy and romance mixed in. You’ll find warmth, truth and fun throughout this delightful story.
Don’t miss opening night on Saturday, January 5th. There is a professionally catered party at 6 pm with the show to follow at 7 pm. Be there, as Act II presents ‘The Foreigner’ to Vallarta audiences once again.
‘The Foreigner’ will then be performed each Wednesday night at 7 pm, with a special show added on Saturday, Jan 12th at 7 pm.
