The New Jewish Theatre has a “sweetheart” of a promotion

The J’s New Jewish Theatre will continue its 24thseason in June with the romantic comedy, Dear Jack, Dear Louise from June 9 – 26, 2022. The show follows the tremendous success of the season’s last show, Laughter on the 23rd floor.

“I am so pleased to present the regional premiere of Ken Ludwig’s sweet and earnest love story,” said artistic director Eddie Coffield.

The production will be directed by Sharon Hunter, artistic director of Moonstone Theatre Company. This will be Hunter’s NJT directorial debut. The show will feature a talented two-person cast, NJT veteran Ryan Lawson Maeske as Jack and Molly Burris, who will be making her NJT debut, as Louise. The creative team is comprised of Dunsi Dai on scenery, David LaRose on lighting, Amanda Were on sound and Michele Siler on costumes.

“I am thrilled to be making my NJT directing debut, “said Sharon Hunter. “I am honored to help tell the real-life story of two people who fall in love while corresponding during WWII. My family worked for the USO for over 15 years and both my mother and grandmother corresponded with loved ones serving in the military during WWII and Vietnam. This play is very close to my heart,” she said.
