(Lancaster, PA) - Fulton Theatre continues the Ellen Arnold Groff Series produced in the Tell Studio Theater with the World Premiere of Changing Channels. Written by John Reeger (The Man Who Murdered Sherlock Holmes, The Christmas Schooner) the play is set backstage at the DuMont Television Network in New York City. Comedy actress Maggie Carlin has her integrity questioned during Cold War turmoil when actors are being blacklisted for their political beliefs. The show explores the space between fame and personal freedom, between acceptable dissent and political betrayal, all backdropped by the pressure of the rise of a hit comedy show.
“Bisgaier and Fahrer (sic) are both expertly cast. Bisgaier does a very solid turn as the larger than life, Eddie Gilroy. Just like Jackie Gleason he is skilled at being simultaneously brash and lovable. Farher (sic) is good, no matter what she does at the Fulton. Her deadpan delivery and confident demeanor would make Pert Kelton proud.” - Broadway World
