In brief: Bernie Madoff-inspired play in Nutley
“The Commons of Pensacola,” by Amanda Peet opens on Friday, Nov. 8, at Nutley Little Theatre, and will play for three weekends, closing on Nov. 23.
The play, inspired by the Bernie Madoff scandal, features Montclair’s Fallon Goskowski, Deshja Driggs-Hall and Mareau Hall.
The play is directed by Amy Sellars of Ridgewood. NLT writes, "This funny and incisive drama examines guilt by association, lost wealth, and the challenges of trying to love your family under the most difficult circumstances." This show’s performances will run Nov. 9, 15, 16, 21, 22 & 23 at 8 p.m.; and Nov. 10, 17 & 23 at 2 p.m.
