All New People, which is often poking fun at contemporary references, is a tightly written piece. Its sampling of media convergence charmingly pushes the story forward.
About All New People:
It’s the dead of winter and the summer vacation getaway of Long Beach Island, New Jersey is desolate and blanketed in snow. Charlie (Bartha) is 35, heartbroken and just wants some time away from the rest of the world. The island ghost town seems to be the perfect escape until his solitude is interrupted by a motley parade of misfits who show up and change his plans. A hired beauty (Camp), the townie fireman (Barnes), and an eccentric British real estate agent (Ritter) desperately trying to stay in the country suddenly find themselves tangled together in a beach house where the mood is anything but sunny.
All New People is now playing at the Second Stage Theatre, 305 West 43rd St., N.Y. The play is directed by Peter DuBois. For tickets and more information, visit www.2st.com.
