                             Desiderio's Dinner Theatre Presents the hilarious comedy

                                                                "Social Security"

                                                               By Andrew Bergman

                                                          Directed by Susan Toomey


Social Security is a comedy by Andrew Bergman. It focuses on trendy Manhattan art gallery owners, whose lives are turned upside down when her sister Trudy deposits their eccentric mother Sophie on the couple's doorstep while she and her husband head to Buffalo to rescue their college student daughter who seems to be having too much sex and not enough studying. Sophie is introduced to suave ninety something year old artist named Maurice, who offers to paint her portrait and soon begins to brighten her life in ways she never expected in her twilight years.

After twenty-six previews, the Broadway production, opened on April 17, 1986 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, where it ran for 388 performances. The cast featured Marlo Thomas, Ron Silver and Olympia Dukakis.

 “Just when you were beginning to think you were never going to laugh again on Broadway, along comes Social Security and you realize that it is once more safe to giggle in the streets. Indeed, you can laugh out loud, joyfully, with, as it were, social security, for the play is a hoot, and better yet, a sophisticated, even civilized hoot.” – New York Post 

Desiderio Dinner Theatre features some of Buffalo’s finest talent with Lisa Hinca, Larry Smith,       Marc-Jon Filippone, Margo Davis, Eileen Duggan & Lawrence Rowswell.
