Tipping Point Theatre, metro Detroit’s newest professional theatre company, is extending the run of its current production, Neil Simon’s comedy “The Dinner Party.” Originally scheduled to run through Dec. 28, three performances have been added to extend the run through Jan. 4. Performances are scheduled for Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m.; Saturdays at 3 p.m. (with the exception of Jan. 3) and Sundays at 2 p.m. There will not be performances on Dec. 25 and Jan. 1. Ticket prices range from $18 to $25.
“The Dinner Party” follows five people who have been invited to dine at a first-rate restaurant in Paris. They do not know who the other guests will be or why they have been invited. Tossed together in a private dining room, they have a sneaking suspicion that this unorthodox dinner party will forever change their lives. The evening is filled with playful antics, sudden zaniness and masterful comic dialogue as the mystery unfolds.
The original production opened on Broadway in 2001 and ran for 364 performances. Comprising the play’s ensemble cast are Wayne David Parker (Dearborn), Julia Glander (Ann Arbor), Aaron T. Moore (St. Clair Shores), Stephanie L. Stephan (Toledo, Ohio), Dave Davies (Warren) and Karin Pearson (Northville). The mission of Tipping Point Theatre is to foster human interactions and relations, creating a unifying, yet personal, experience through affordable, professional-level theater performances and community outreach.
