George Street Playhouse Set For Opening Night at NBPAC
NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - The anguish and approbation of Steve Kluger's life will play out on stage when the curtain goes up on opening night and George Street Playhouse presents "Last Days of Summer."
Kluger, who wrote the book on which the play is based and also has written the lyrics to the musical's tunes, wanted to give his father a role model he never had since his dad was never around.
So he created this story about Joe Margolis and his son, who open a box of letters that transport Joe back to his youth in 1940s Brooklyn. Young Joey and his best friend, Craig, are writing fan letters to their hero, Charlie Banks. Banks, the star third baseman of the New York Giants, and Joey forge an unlikely friendship that might be the very best thing they both need.
