Opening September 5 for just four short weeks, Joyce Dewitt, co-star of the ABC hit comedy, "Three's Company," will star in Sam Bobrick's romantic comedy, Remember Me. From 1977 through 1984 – for more than 170 episodes -- miss DeWitt is most widely known to audiences for her role as "Janet Wood", but she is no stranger to live theater, working both as actress and director in a stage career that spans over forty years. She recently starred in A Scattered, Smothered and Covered Christmas Musical and the Canadian productions of the 2000 Pulitzer Prize-winning play Dinner With Friends and Alfred Uhry's Tony Award-winning play The Last Night of Ballyhoo. Other recent stage performances include the North American premiere of the Australian comedy Daylight Savings, the British farce Noises Off, the revival of Cole Porter's Anything Goes, and the Broadway musical Olympus on My Mind, for which she completed the cast recording - her first record album.
Remember Me will run from September 5 through October 7. Said Smith, "We are delighted to have Joyce with us in Remember Me. Every time I mention her coming to the Alhambra, people light up. Her role in "Three's Company" is as memorable as any, and we are excited to have her as part of our Alhambra family."
Co-starring in Remember Me is Joyce Dewitt's niece, Katharine DeWitt. Katharine made her stage debut at five years old as the precocious brick pig in The Three Little Pigs. She majored in theatre at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and Sarah Lawrence College. Highlights of her work include performing Off-Broadway at Ensemble Studio Theatre in White Buffalo; Uncle Vanya at The Atlantic Theatre Company; and participating in Musical Theatre Workshops at The Lee Strasberg Institute, New York, including Maria in West Side Story and Miss Adelaide in Guys and Dolls. She was most recently seen performing in the Barefoot Theatre Company's production of I'm Connecticut, Mike Reiss' latest play. She and her aunt have never appeared together – another first for the new Alhambra Theatre & Dining.
