“Perhaps the highest praise that can be given to Steven Dietz’s praiseworthy new comedy is that it’s funny. Not ironic. Not hysterical in a slapsticky kind of way. Just gently and consistently funny—right up to the point that it’s touching, and then even a little bit after that.” – Variety.
Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn’t dare. Becky’s New Car is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.
Enjoy Dinner & the Show!
We’re excited to announce partnerships with Ocean Prime and Truluck’s to offer a special “pre-theatre” take-out menu to compliment the virtual performance.
The Naples Players is one of the first companies in the country – and the first in the region – to produce a full virtual production filmed after the COVID-19 closure. We’re excited to embrace the digital format not as a replacement for live theatre – and not even as a recording of live theatre – but as its own new medium to help tell the compelling stories you would have seen on-stage.
Boasting pre-show menus before the COVID-19 shutdown, both Ocean Prime and Truluck’s are excited to once again provide quality dining before enjoying a show by The Naples Players.
“The Naples Players represent the gold standard of artistic expression and community advocacy here in Naples. Truluck’s has been honored to partner with this beloved organization since our opening in 2004″ says Stuart Dickson, Truluck’s General Manager. Ocean Prime agreed. “This is a nice way to take one step towards normalcy – by enjoying a great Ocean Prime dinner and yet another great performance from The Naples Players” says Ocean Prime General Manager Rick Giannasi.
For $40, Ocean prime’s take-out theater menu will include:
- choice of House or Caesar salad
- choice of 4 entrees
- and carrot cake or homemade chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
- Upgrade entree choice of Chilean Sea Bass or Prime New York Strip steak for an additional $10
For $65, Truluck’s take-out theater menu will include:
- Soup & Salad (Lobster Bisque, Sonoma Greens Salad, or Ceaser Salad)
- choice of 4 entrees
- and carrot cake, chocolate malt cake, or Key Lime Pie
Take-out orders can be placed over the phone for both restaurants:
