West Bloomfield’s Jewish Ensemble Theatre will be putting on a production of Harvey Fierstein’s Tony Award-Winning ‘Casa Valentina’. The play opens on May 24 and runs through June 17. It follows the lives of women named Miranda, Bessie, Valentina, Charlotte, Gloria, Terry and Amy who meet regularly at their favorite vacation spot in the Catskills.
The group of seven aren’t cisgender women however, their given names are Jonathon, Albert, George, Isadore, Michael, Theodore and one simply referred to as The Judge.
However, the show isn’t about a group of transgender women, it focuses on the fact that the resort the visit caters to straight men who secretly love to dress as women. Trouble brews when their comfort zones are pushed to limit when a newcomer attempts to change the longstanding rules of the resort. Among the cast are actors Joe Bailey, Vince Kelley, Charles VanHoose and many more. Some of the cast are also Ringwald Theatre regulars. Show tickets start at $16 and a full schedule can be found online at jettheatre.org, or by calling 248-788-2900. The show will be held at the Aaron Deroy Theatre at the Jewish Community Center which is located at 6600 W. Maple Road, West Bloomfield.
