Pressman & Ames aiming to bring ROOM SERVICE back to B'way

ROOM SERVICE, the 1937 screwball comedy by Allen Boretz and John Murray is targeting B'way.  The play, perhaps best known to audiences around the world for the RKO film adaptation starring the Marx Brothers, has been optioned by producers Michael Pressman and Andrew Ames through Samuel French. Pressman and Ames are aiming for a production in the 2017-2018 B'way Season, and hope to announce casting in the coming months. Mr Pressman will direct the show that tells the story of a desperate and nimble-witted producer, living on credit with several actors in a Broadway hotel. He finds his script, and, by great good luck, he also finds an angel with $15,000. During a hectic few days, the producer plays hide-and-seek with the angel who wants to withdraw his financial support, manages to outwit creditors, and open his play in spite of the most ludicrous and unexpected obstacles.
