Todd Fleck returns to the Lab boards in ’55 and Over’


Happy 16

Opening for a limited, 3-performance run on May 26 at Lab Theater is a new play (which is actually still under development) by Zalman Velvel by the name of 55 and Over. It shines a stark light on severely burdened seniors, that is retired folks living exclusively on Social Security who shell out more than half of their income for rent. 55 and Over revolves around a 75-year-old by the name of Moe who’s been evicted from his apartment because he opted for groceries and his expensive heart medication in lieu of paying his rent. That’s when Moe’s grandson shows up with his pregnant 17-year-old girlfriend Ariella for a Happy 05Svisit!

Todd Fleck returns to the Lab boards for 55 and Over. Fleck turned in a command performance in Lab Theater’s production of Robert Caisley’s Happy, where he played the part of Alfred, a college professor who’s determined to find the silver lining behind every challenge, problem and set back until he encounters his best friend’s dour, gin-soaked new lover (played by 55 and Over director Stella Ruiz)
