The production deserves four stars since it is practically flawless. The set has been meticulously constructed and the actors are true professionals. The casting reduced... continued

This was a lite, gross, campy trifle. This theater has a pole in the middle that obstructs views from many seats. The front rows were reserved for a theater party, so even though we arrived early we were out of luck.

Quotes & Highlights

“Inspired by ‘60s sex farces and ribald vaudeville skits… you’re in for a wacky night, punctuated by Troy’s snappy one-liners, Moses’ breezy staging, and Del Monte’s lecherous leer and Yiddish kvetching.” -L.A.Weekly
“…the excellent cast perfectly nails the zany tempo. They make it look easy, and it’s not…. A tight script and fine direction further craft this wacky comedy into a whole carnival of fun.” —Tolucan Times
“Audiences who endorsed _Tsuris, _playwright Mark Troy’s previous hit at the Sidewalk Studio Theatre in Toluca Lake, may go gaga for his latest offering, Paging Dr. Chutzpah. This lewd and lunatic study of a predatory Park Avenue shrink drop-kicks the Catskills style into a place somewhere between Woody Allen and Hooters. " - Los Angeles Times

Description

The Sidewalk Studio Theatre presents the world premiere of Paging Dr. Chutzpah, a new comedy by Mark Troy, directed by Lynne Moses.

What happens when you get a world-renowned Park Avenue psychiatrist, his nephew, a neurotic secretary, a stripper and a cat in the same room?

Dr. Lester Oronofsky is New York’s top psychiatrist. It says so on his website. Park Avenue office, lecture tours, book deals. But with one problem, The doctor loves the women. Tall, short, big, small — and particularly… his patients! When Oronofsky’s estranged nephew shows up for a visit, he is not only confronted with his sexual indiscretions, but with the fear that the young protege comes with a deep dark secret.  This is sure to cause a lot of mishegas!

The play features an outstanding ensemble boasting both international and local acclaim. Its members are: Marq Del Monte, Heidi Fielek, Colette Freedman, Melissa Tan Hardy, Danny Lippin and Alycia Tracy.
