Beau Jest

(4 MEN, 2 WOMEN)

BEAU JEST is the hilarious, heart-warming play that ran for a year in Chicago and was a phenomenal Off-Broadway hit for two and a half years.

Sarah Goldman is secretly dating Chris who does not meet the approval of her traditionally-minded parents. To please them, Sarah invents the perfect boyfriend. When the parents want to meet him, Sarah, in desperation, hires Bob, an out of work actor, to pretend to be her make-believe beau.

"Hilarious and quite moving. Sherman wonderfully blends farce with a genuine insight."

โ€” Chicago Sun-Times

"Very funny. The well-crafted play has a lot to say about nuclear families of any ethnic persuasion."

โ€” Wall Street Journal

"This mainstream crowd-pleaser wrings maximum laughs out of its simple but pleasant premise."

โ€” Variety
