From the theatre:Joe White’s got it all. He’s handsome, he’s charming, he’s got a great career and a killer smile that manages to land him a different girl every night. But all that changes when his mother drops a bombshell on him: she’s got cancer and her dying wish is to have a grandchild. With his bachelorhood threatened, Joe is faced with a choice. He could give up his womanizing ways and find a nice girl to settle down and have kids with... OR... he could convince his bitter, angry ex-girlfriend from college – who just happens to have a daughter in her early twenties – to pretend that her daughter is his daughter. As their tangled web of lies unravels, Joe and company find themselves on a hilarious journey full of unexpected twists and turns that will have you looking at cancer and commitment in a whole new way!What's New World Stages?
New World Stages is a converted complex of movie theaters in midtown, about a block west of the Broadway theater district. Very well-apportioned, with excellent intermission bars and very comfortable seats, it is a rental house, meaning that outside producers pay the theater a certain amount to bring their shows in, resulting in wildly varying fare, but the high rental cost tends to keep the sketchiest of the riff-raff at bay.
