How to Play the Game
by Overtime Theater
Aug. 28 - Sep. 26, 2015
An original musical. A thrilling love story with a gamble. How To Play The Game is set in the almost fairytale locale of New Orleans, although our tale is anything but fantasy. A young gambler, Grant, lured by a poker tournament, leaves his wife, Gwen, to go off into The Big Easy. Following a cunning and handsome city slick to Big Daddy Shaw's Casino, he meets the villainous yet fabulous Shaw (played by Dino Foxx) and the gorgeous showgirl Emma. Tempted by the city, the game, and the girl, Grant risks everything to win it big. Does he win? Does he stay true to Gwen? Does he make it out of Shaw's grasp alive?
