But in the meantime, if the cold weather is giving you cabin fever, then the management of the theater suggests you watch George and Doris as they spend one weekend a year in a cabin in California? They agree to meet the "Same Time, Next Year" and their love affair is intense, passionate, and takes place over 24 years with us observing them every 5. George and Doris have one little problem however; both are married to other people and have 6 kids between them. Although they are in love, they still love their other families, but passion and even sharing their families’ stories keeps them meeting every year.
The extremely successful play was made into a movie that starred Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn. It is an unforgettable romantic comedy as the pair deal with their conflict of emotions, torn between their own passion for each other and the love of their real families. But the Broadway version is even fresher, more alive, and at times, a laugh-out-loud excursion into illicit love.
It's a play not to be missed. George (Matt Fulkerson) and Doris (Claire Brassard) are already veterans of the stage at the Courtyard Theater. Both appeared in starring roles in "Sweeney Todd", the theaters opening play last year. "Same Time, Next Year" is rated PG-17 for its theme and language.
