Adelphi University’s talented theatre students will perform Lovers and Other Strangers, a classic show that was a hit both on Broadway and on film, under the direction of Nicholas Petron, chair of the Department of Theatre. Lovers and Other Strangers runs from February 28-March 5 at the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center (AUPAC), Black Box Theatre, 1 South Avenue, Garden City, New York.

Lovers and Other Strangers, written by Renée Taylor and Joseph Bologna, is a series of comedic one-acts, each centering on a conflict with a different couple. In Brenda and Jerry, a planned seduction goes wrong. Johnny and Wilma have been married so long that they can’t remember who starts what. With Mike and Susan, on the eve of their wedding, he’s getting cold feet and she must gently talk him down the aisle. In Bea, Frank, Richie and Joan, a long-married couple who have fought for over 30 years try to save their son’s marriage by confessing to their own failures. This edition also includes the popular Hal and Cathy sequence created for the film.

AUPAC is one of Long Island’s premier cultural arts venues for entertainment of all kinds. Tickets are currently on sale and are priced at $20, with discounts available to seniors, students and alumni. Information is available at the Lucia and Steven N.
