Scandal In Manhattan - A Comedy by Bobby Holder
Scandal in Manhattan is a "romantical" comedy that twists and turns like a farcical murder mystery.
This laugh-out-loud journey is moved along swiftly by the acts
and yearnings of a flamboyant front-desk supervisor at a mid-town Manhattan hotel,
who is continuously being overwhelmed by his straight staff and his "questionably straight" guests.
All hell, lust, and love break loose when a young handsome gentlemen and an impatient southern woman,
accused of killing her father with roach poison, arrive to check-in.
The hotel and the play are packed full of peculiar characters,
each completing a comical life journey, as they each ask the question:
"Who Killed Daddy?"
About the Company: Midtown International Theatre Festival
The Midtown International Theatre Festival, now in its eleventh year, celebrates the diversity of theatre. The MITF welcomes theatrical storytelling across a broad spectrum of genres, forms, identities, cultures, and appetites. The MITF seeks to nurture these new ideas, perspectives, and stories on its stages, with an eye set on guiding these productions toward future success and longevity. The festival, traditionally held in summer, represents a fantastic, often paradoxical, adventurous and intriguing cross-section of the forefront of the theatre world. The MITF proudly hosts production companies from across the country and around the globe, uniting talent in one of the biggest theatre capitals in the world.
Mr. Chatterton created the MITF, a Midtown alternative to other theatre festivals, in 2000 as a way to present the finest off-off Broadway talent in convenience, comfort, and safety. In 2008, the Festival added two 99-seat theatres and inaugurated the Commercial Division for upwardly mobile shows with commercial ambitions. The MITF's artistic emphasis is on the script itself and therefore the Festival requests minimal production values.
