Lady killers — How two men handle the women in their lives delivers the laughs in ‘No Way to Treat a Lady’
March 25, 2015
Audiences will be excited that Village Theatre veteran director Steve Tomkins was able to cross off another production from his bucket list — this time, one of the first productions in the Village Originals program in 1999, “No Way to Treat a Lady.”
Adapted from a William Goldman novel, Douglas J. Cohen penned a tale of Christopher “Kit” Gill and Morris Brummel, who are both having mommy issues. How they approach their problems is at the core of the musical.

“No Way To Treat A Lady,” the theatrically charged new musical about a cunning yet charming serial killer, makes its mainstage Village Theatre debut March 19. (It ends April 26.)
The cat-and-mouse detective thriller is rounded out with a little romance, a lot of laughs, and an upbeat score full of catchy melodies and quick-witted lyrics.

Village Theatre continues its passion for creating art with a 2014-2015 season that includes the Bob Fosse classic “Cabaret,” the Disney family favorite “Mary Poppins,” the contemporary Broadway hit “In the Heights,” brand new musical comedy thriller “No Way to Treat a Lady” and a straight play based on the Jules Verne book “Around the World in 80 Days.”
Village Theatre’s own Steve Tomkins will direct “Mary Poppins” and “No Way to Treat a Lady.” The theater will welcome Eric Ankrim (director) and Daniel Cruz (choreographer) for “In the Heights.”
Earlier start times (7:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday evenings) launched last season will continue, and four- and three-show subscription packages will be available for purchase just before and just after the holiday season.
