Falcon Theatre is proud to present I Ought To Be In Pictures written by Neil Simon and directed by Gregg W. Brevoort, the second production of the Falcon Theatre’s 2012-2013 Subscription Season. This classic family tale told with Neil Simon’s signature comedic wit stars Kelly Hare (Franklin & Bash, The New Adventures of Old Christine), Genevieve Joy (Sensing Murder, My HBO Special) and Robert Wuhl (Arli$$, Assume the Position with Mr. Wuhl, Batman).

It’s 1980 and struggling screenwriter Herbert Tucker suddenly finds his estranged 19-year-old daughter Libby has hitchhiked to Hollywood and landed on his doorstep. After sixteen years of disconnection, Libby sweeps into Herb’s home, convinced that he can give her the silver screen acting career she desires, and demands the love and fatherly guidance he owes her. With the isolation of his California bungalow disturbed, Herb is forced to deal with the realities of fatherhood, and a renewed sense of direction that may affect his relationship with his on-again-off-again girlfriend Steffy. This funny and heartwarming story from one of America’s most renowned playwrights proves that even the most dysfunctional families can undergo astounding transformations.

“Not merely funny, but thought-provoking and in many ways inspirational…Gregg W. Brevoort’s direction is spot-on… [Wuhl] makes for a tender yet robust father. His warmth and sense-of-humor mark a performance strong in virtually every aspect.”

“I Ought to Be in Pictures” has more substance than Simon’s sitcom-style early works...Simon’s trademark gag lines intermingle with touching dramatic nuances...there’s an affecting tale of family dysfunction and wayward souls here. [Wuhl] has his best moments in a heartrending monologue, in which he has a phone conversation with his long-neglected son."
--Edge Magazine

“Wow! Two enjoyable hours of forget-your-troubles theater, with plenty of chuckles and some out-loud guffaws along the way…Wuhl and joy are terrific together and keep getting better and better the deeper into the play and their relationship we get…Simon’s eighteenth Broadway show sneaks up on you and grabs you by the heart.”
