Nancy Opel to star in Ken Ludwig's The Fox on the Fairway at George Street Playhouse

By Andrew Gans for

Broadway favorite Nancy Opel (Evita, Urinetown) will play Pamela Peabody in the George Street Playhouse's upcoming production of Ken Ludwig’s The Fox on the Fairway, which begins performances at the New Brunswick venue March 22.

Directed by George Street artistic director David Saint, the production will officially open March 25. Performances will continue through April 17.

Additional casting and creative team members will be announced at a later time.

Ken Ludwig's The Fox on the Fairway opens as underdog Quail Valley Country Club prepares to take on archrival Crouching Squirrel in this year’s Annual Inter-Club Golf Tournament. With a sizable wager at stake, the contest plays out amidst three love affairs, a disappearing diamond, objectionable sweaters and an exploding vase. Sex and water hazards collide in this artful madcap adventure about love and golf."

Nancy Opel returns to George Street after playing multiple roles in the world premiere of the Joe DiPietro/David Bryan musical The Toxic Avenger. She transferred with the production to New York’s New World Stages, where she received Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Drama League award nominations.
