The Hasty Pudding Theatricals has presented its unique brand of student-written theater every year since 1844, making it the third oldest theater organization in the world as well as a beloved Harvard tradition. Join us on our New York tour to catch these dames putting the broad in Broadway in HPT 170: Intermission Impossible.
Places, everyone! World War II is over, New York is booming, and alcoholic playwright TENNESSEE WHISKEY
is making his Broadway debut. After aging actress FAYE DINAWAY
is deemed too old for her role, struggling deli waitress MEGAN ITBIG
gets her chance to audition. But when America’s sweetheart and ditzy pageant queen AMBER WAVESOFGRAIN
lands the lead, Megan teams up with Faye to reclaim the spotlight. Will hunky sailor SAL PACIFIC
find his first mate, or will he stay at half mast? Will cranky Southern matron AUNTIE BELLUM
learn to accept the “alternative lifestyle” of her nephew Tennessee? Will Shakespearean director TOBY ORNOTTOBE
realize his vision, or will it turn into a comedy of errors? Can no-nonsense taxi driver HAILEY CAB
learn that all’s fare in love and war? Will it ever be explained why RICKEY RAT
can talk? Catch these dames putting the broad in Broadway.
This year’s writers are Shaun Gohel ’18 and Mike Skerrett ’18.
