In Tandem Finds Farce in 'Veronica's Position'

As the presidential election picks up speed, In Tandem Theatre closes its season with a comedy set in Washington, D.C. The Rich Orloff comedy Veronica's Position is a contemporary farce involving a famous pair of middle-aged actors who have agreed to appear in a Broadway-bound stage production of Hedda Gabler.

Formerly married, leading woman Veronica and leading man Philip find themselves involved in contrasting relationships. Orloff mixes things up with a few other characters, and the play gets delightfully complicated in the way that so often happens in comedies of this sort.

Tiffany Vance and Steve Koehler play the estranged Veronica and Philip. Vance and Koehler, who appeared as feuding husband and wife in the 2010 production of In Tandem's Art of Murder, have a history of creating entertaining antagonism. T. Stacy Hicks, also a veteran of that 2010 production, plays Veronica's personal assistant. Hicks portrays the spirit of efficiency, a character who finds himself drawn to a controversial photographer played by the charismatic Joe Fransee. The talented Libby Amato adds to the cast as the hot young director for Hedda Gabler. Once again, In Tandem has pulled together a cast with a knack for comedy.

In Tandem's production of Veronica's Position runs May 4-20 at the Tenth Street Theatre. For ticket reservations, call 414-271-1371.
