Tonight’s Special by Joe Hanrahan
The Midnight Company
The play takes place in a very nice restaurant, just prior to the dinner rush. The Headwaiter, Lenny - a battle-scarred veteran of the restaurant wars - is waiting for the newest member of his staff to arrive. Rose is an actress, earning extra money as a waitress. She’s a bright, hard-working and enthusiastic addition to his team. ut as the play begins, Lenny is figuring out how he’s going to fire her.
Julie Amuedo as Rose: Briefly a character performer in Disney World before COVID-19, Julie is now back in St. Louis and has been part of several projects including “Two of Every Animal” with SATE, “The Food Monologues” with OverDue Theater, “Khakis” and “Playdate” by Scott Wisdom in the St. Louis Film Festival, and will soon be performing in “Breadcrumbs” with R-S Theatrics. With a degree in Theater from Truman State University, she is thrilled to have the chance to work with other local creatives.
Joe Hanrahan as Lenny: Joe is the Artistic Director of The Midnight Company. This year he’s performed in “Here Lies Henry” and in his script “Now Playing Third Base For The St. Louis Cardinals…Bond, James Bond” with the Company. Upcoming for Midnight, he’ll be seen in “It Is Magic” in October and the premiere of his script “Tinsel Town” in December. His short play “Patient #47” will be presented by True Community Theatre in their Truth, Lies and Confessions Festival in October.
Linda Menard- Hostess/Stage Manager: Linda always enjoys working with Joe and Midnight.
