Opening Night for Mitch Albom’s “And The Winner Is” – at Villagers Theatre



OCTOBER 4, 2012

Opening Night for Mitch Albom’s “And The Winner Is” – at Villagers Theatre, in association with Villagers Independent Producer (VIP) Series.

And The Winner Is tells the comic story of Tyler Johnes, a self-obsessed movie star known for the “Chippen-Cop” movie franchise; Chippendale dancers by day – Cops by night. Tyler is finally nominated for an Oscar, then dies the night before the awards. Outraged at his bad luck and determined to know if he wins (even though he’s dead), he bargains with a heavenly gatekeeper to return to earth for the big night. Along the way, he drags his agent, his acting rival, his bombshell girlfriend and his ex-wife into the journey, in a wildly twisting tale of Hollywood, the afterlife, and how we are judged. The playwright Mitch Albom is also a bestselling author who brought you “Tuesdays with Morrie”, “The Five People You Meet in Heaven” and “Have A Little Faith”. “And The Winner Is” was Mitch Albom’s second comedy. Parents should consider the play PG-13.
