Video One Productions’ Co-Facilitator Phil Doran (photo below) has written a new comedic take on life in retirement. The play, “Welcome to Baby Boomer Blues,” by the retired TV writer and Village resident who worked on such shows as “All in the Family” and “Sanford and Son,” is produced by the Theatre Guild of Laguna Woods. Performances are scheduled March 1 and 2 at 7 pm and March 3 at 2 pm in the Performing Arts Center. Tickets ($18 orchestra, $13 balcony) are available at the Box Office.
A short video promo for the play will be shot by Video One Productions in the Video Studio in early February, using the green screen, according to Phil.
In 2016, Phil originated the popular Village TV game show, “Never Too Late to Date,” for the Video Club. The show, which matched up single resident contestants, was a takeoff on “The Dating Game,” a show Phil once worked on. Phil also produced the Video Club’s first dramatic video, “Write It Down,” with Video One Productions, which premiered January 17 at the club’s 30th Anniversary Open House.
Alan Bravin and Toni Redman star in the new play, which asks: “Will and Nicki come to the Village to help Nicki’s mom, but, now that they’re old enough to live here, are they young enough to keep up?” Others in the cast are Lee MacMorris, Paul Kratzer, George Zilligen, Sandy O’Connor, and Bonnie Lutz. For Village residents and their guests only, the comdey is directed by Marc Bailey and produced by Phil and Barbara Powell.
