This Pulitzer Prize-nominated play, featuring Marilyn Hilbert & Michael Hennessey, details a 50-year relationship between two individuals, Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner.
He is a staid, no-nonsense, play-by-the-rules kind of guy. She is impulsive, impetuous, lively and unstable. These two opposites seem to complete each other.
Marilyn has appeared in four productions at The Marco Players including Jake’s Women, On Golden Pond, Take Five, Twelve Angry Jurors, Plaza Suite and The Last Romance.
She has also been seen in productions with Stage 88, the Naples Players and the Naples Dinner Theater.
Her other acting credits include Frau Schmidt in the Sound of Music, the doctor in Death Defying Acts, the sister in Prisoner of Second Avenue, Kate in Brighton Beach Memories, Daphne in The Perfect Wedding and various ETC readings at the Naples Players.
Marilyn is a past member of the Board Of Directors of TMP.
Michael made his original stage appearance with The Marco Players in The Love List four seasons ago and has become a regular on our stage.
His other credits at TMP include, Come Blow Your Horn, On Golden Pond, his original script Take Five, and Visiting Mr. Green.
In addition to being a member of the Dramatist Guild, Michael’s 45 year career has taken him from theaters in Canada and Mexico, to appearances in film and television.
He has also appeared locally with The Naples Players in Lend Me a Tenor, Tale of the Allergists Wife, Proof, Broadway Bound, and Rumors and in Stage 88’s production of Escanaba in Da Moonlight.
Michael is a member of the Board of Directors of TMP.
