HACKENSACK, N.J. – Fair Lawn’s Teddy Coluca, who plays Mr. Brimley on NBC’s “The Blacklist,” will lead the ensemble in the Company Theatre Group’s presentation of comedy legend Steve Martin’s “The Underpants” at the new Hackensack Performing Arts Center.
Opening night is this Saturday, with performances running through May 6.
It’s the debut HACPAC performance for the Company, one of three professional theater groups in Bergen County and the only one in residence at the new center at 102 State Street.
Co-directed by Coluca and Lou Scarpati, “The Underpants” originally was written for the stage by Carl Sternheim in 1910 before being adapted by Martin.
It begins with conservative German government clerk Theo Maske chastising his young wife, Louise, after he finds out her underpants fell down in public.
What follows is a door-slamming, double-entendre tale of scandal involving gentlemen callers, a nosy neighbor, an oblivious husband and very proper scientist (plays by Coluca) who walks into the wrong place at the wrong time.
