New Jewish Theatre to open ‘Sirens’

Facebook, Scrabulous, handheld solitaire games, the Greek Isles, Greek myths… what do all of these things have in common? They all figure prominently in New Jewish Theatre’s upcoming production of Sirens by Deborah Zoe Laufer, where a 25th anniversary trip to the Greek Isles becomes a catalyst for an amusing series of events in this quirky romantic comedy.

The biggest hit from last year’s Humana Festival of New American Plays, Laufer’s play is a quirky empty-nest romantic comedy about a husband and wife and the hit love song he wrote for her more than 25 years ago.

Tom Martin directs a cast of four: Kari Ely, Bobby Miller, Leah Berry and John Kinney. The production runs for three weeks, from Feb. 16 to March 6 with performances on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m., with an additional performance on Sunday, Feb. 27 at 7:30. Tickets are $34-38 and can be purchased through the New Jewish Theatre box office at 314-442-3283 or online at
