About the Theatre Group of OTOW
“Broadway” is a state of mind. So, welcome to “Broadway”.
For more than a decade the OTOW Theatre Group has established a tradition of producing legitimate theatre comedies by some of the nation’s best-known playwrights
These plays have included acts taken from the full length comedies: Plaza Suite and California Suite by Neil Simon.
Also performed on the OTOW stage were the full three-act version of Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring; Never Too Late by Sumner Arthur Long; The Curious Savage by John Patrick; Let’s Murder Marsha by Monk Ferris; The Robin Hood Caper by Fred Carmichael; The Second Time Around and Luxury Cruise both by Henry Denker; Death by Chocolate by Paul Freed and Social Security by Andrew Bergman.
In addition there have been numerous one-act comedies by such writers as John Kirkpatrick, D. K. Oklahoma, Herman Coble, Robert J. Flaherty. All of this, plus the one act comedy, What About Nana? by OTOW resident Bob O’Neal.
It is now up to a new generation of OTOW residents to carry on this proud tradition. Again, welcome to Broadway. Won’t you join us?
