World Premiere “Quack” runs at the Kirk Douglas Theater until November 18, so this week is the last chance to get to see this original comedy
Millions of women across America rely on Dr. Irving Baer and his daytime talk show to help them lose weight, manifest their destinies, and take their health into their own hands. Then, a take-down piece of journalism goes viral, leaving his career hanging in the balance, his marriage on the rocks, and his carefully maintained public persona in peril. In the frenzy of crisis management that follows, one thing becomes clear…if Irving Baer is going to fall from grace, he’s bringing everyone else with him.
Eliza Clark’s hilarious new comedy exposes the shaky foundations of the wellness industry, the fleeting nature of 21st-century fame, and the relationship between the powerful men who dole out advice and the women who are supposed to receive it with a smile.
The cast includes Dan Bucatinsky (Second Act, Emmy winner for Scandal), Jackie Chung (Grey’s Anatomy), Nicholas D’Agosto (Trial & Error, Gotham), Jessalyn Gilsig (Scandal, Glee), and Shoniqua Shandai (Sierra Burgess Is a Loser).
