All-star cast plays in "The Nerd"

Larry Shue’s comedy, “The Nerd,” will run at Bucks County Playhouse (BCP) from June 23 through July 15.
The cast includes Grant Shaud, seen on Broadway in “Relatively Speaking” and known as Miles from the Emmy-award winning television series “Murphy Brown.”

Also starring are Zuzanna Szadkowski, remembered as Dorota Kishlovsky on “Gossip Girl” and as Nurse Pell in Steven Soderbergh’s “The Knick,” and Joe Kinosian, writer and star of the award-winning musical “Murder for Two.”

Willum Cubbert, an aspiring young architect in Terre Haute, Ind., has often told his friends about the debt he owes to Rick Steadman, a fellow ex-GI who saved his life — but whom he never met. He had written to Rick with an oath — as long as he is alive, “You will have somebody on Earth who will do anything for you.”

Willum is delighted when Rick shows up unexpectedly at his apartment on the night of his birthday. Hilarity ensues when it becomes apparent Rick is a bumbling oaf with no social sense, little intelligence and less tact. Most importantly, it looks as if Rick never plans to leave.

Tickets range from $40 to $75, with special rates for groups of 10 or more. Visit buckscountyplayhouse.org, call 215-862-2121, or visit the box office at 70 S. Main St., New Hope.
