The Waterfront Playhouse continues its season with the saucy OffBroadway hit “Spike Heels,” written by Theresa Rebeck. This adult romantic comedy is directed by Carole MacCartee who was at the helm for last year’s hit at the Waterfront “Five Women Wearing the Same Dress.” “Spike Heels” is a sharply funny look at the precariousness of modern relationships and the twisted paths of love, friendship and betrayal. Opening night is on Thursday, Jan. 22, and the play runs until Feb. 7, with all performances beginning at 8 p.m. An opening night party following the performance will be held at the Hyatt Key West Resort at 601 Front St. Rebeck recently had a hit OffBroadway play, concerning 9/11, called “Omnium Gathering,” which she coauthored with Alexandra GerstenVassilaros. In addition to writing for the stage, she also writes for television and film, most notably “NYPD Blue,” “LA Law,” “Third Watch” and “Law and Order: Criminal Intent.” She is the recent recipient of the prestigious William Inge Theatre Festival New Voices Award. The pivotal role of Georgie is played by George diBraud. DiBraud played Blanche duBois in The Waterfront’s production of “A Streetcar Named Desire.” Other credits include “How I Learned to Drive,” “Last Summer at Bluefish Cove,” “Breaking Legs” and “The Food Chain.” Andrew is played by guest artist, Paul Lasa, who has been imported from Miami for this production. Lasa has appeared in such hits as “Bat Boy,” “Prelude To A Kiss,” “The Miser,” “Open Season” and “I Fell in Love with a Girl,” all at various theatres in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale. Larry Cohen plays Edward and was featured in the Waterfront’s hit “Popcorn” starring Kelly McGillis and Lemon Cookie. Jennifer Cohen rounds out the troupe as Lydia. She has starred in “Popcorn,” “The Maiden’s Prayer,” “Don’t Dress For Dinner,” “Lemon Cookie,” “Stop Kiss” and “Forum.” The production only runs for 13 performances, from Jan. 22 to Feb. 7, Tuesdays through Saturdays and is not appropriate for children.
