CP 'Romantic Comedy'

Duane Langley shares a scene with Kelly Barry of North Attleboro in the Community Players’ “Romantic Comedy.” (Bob Emerson)

PAWTUCKET — Duane Langley is stone-cold powerful in his portrayal of arrogant playwright Jason Carmichael in the Community Players 99th season opener, Bernard Slade’s “Romantic Comedy.”

As the play opens, it’s Jason’s wedding day. He’s arguing with Blanche, his agent, who won’t answer the ringing phone for him. Jason displays his self-centered hot temper as he takes the phone call from a former partner.

“Romantic Comedy” runs through Sept. 22 with shows at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Jenks Auditorium, 350 Division St., Pawtucket. General admission tickets are $18 for adults, $12 for students. Purchase online at thecommunityplayers.net or reserve at 401-726-6860.
