Matthew Keuter’s comedy about life and its (unavoidable) lessons premieres February 24 – March 6, 2011

Presented by The Active Theater at The Workshop Theater, 312 West 36th Street, fourth floor.


New York City – "What happens when trusting your gut doesn’t turn out the way you intended?”

That’s the main question in this latest work by Matthew Keuter. In this clever comedy, Trevor (David Ojala) is at a turning point in his life:

WHEN did his fiancée stop wearing his ring?

WHERE did his father disappear to?

WHAT is going to happen to the bar his family owns?

HOW can he still trust his family? ... and

WHY is the mysterious woman he meets under the bridge so eerily accurate about the events of his life?

These and other questions will be answered for 12 performances only at The Workshop Theater, 312 West 36th Street, fourth floor.

Light is always shed a little darker when you spend so much time under a bridge.


Directed by Jason Podplesky and Nathaniel Shaw, the cast includes Anthony Inneo (Broadwayʼs Cyranoand A Chorus Line), Catherine Curtin (Love, Janisand ABC-TV’s The Guiding Light), Rhyn McLemore, Michael Andrew Daly, Mary Jo Mecca, Lisa Altomare, and James Judy. Creative team includes Craig Napoliello (setting), Yuriy Nayer (lighting), Matthew Kessler (costumes), Jacob Subotnick (sound), and Meagan Miller-McKeever (properties). Rebecca Lynne serves as assistant director and Kerri J. Lynch is production stage manager. BRIDGEBOY is an Equity Showcase.
