Maplewood Playhouse will present actor/comedian Peter Fogel’s multimedia one-man show, ‘Til Death Do Us Part…You First, on Thursday, May 19 and Friday, May 20 at the Stage West Theater in Lake Worth.

Perennial bachelor Peter Fogel has major commitment issues because the love of his life just broke up with him on Valentine’s Day. Sensing his own mortality, he is visited by a special guest who enters Fogel’s head and acts as his conscience (Chazz Palminteri in a voiceover). Throughout the story, Palminteri advises Fogel on how he can end all his romantic disasters and reconnect with the one woman who can change his life!

Directed by Oscar-nominated and three-time Emmy Award-winning Chazz Palminteri (A Bronx Tale), Fogel uses his signature wit to bring characters such as Russian ex-girlfriend Irina, the magician and the ex-fiancé Jamie, High Maintenance Marla, her college roommate “Uncle” Harold, as well as her demented father and evil stepmother Eva. They all have one goal: to keep stressing him out about his unfulfilled love life! “The longest relationship I’ve had in my entire life is with Amazon Alexa!” Fogel laments.

“The Stage West Theater is really intimate, which will give me and the audience a greater comedic connection,” Fogel said. “And after taking part in a post-pandemic tour of the United States, it will be fun to be back in South Florida, where I originally worked on the series – and where my director, Chazz Palminteri, m ‘discovered.”

Just as Robert DeNiro discovered Chazz Palminteri in his one-man show A Bronx Tale, director Palminteri discovered Peter’s one-man show while on a run in South Florida. Enthused by the play’s potential, Palminteri immediately offered to direct it.

“Til Death is a show within a show,” says Fogel. “and I’m managed by Chazz – in addition to playing with him on stage.

“The show is brought up to date and funnier than ever. After a successful climb in the Villages, the public wants to laugh again and enjoy the live theater”, he continues. “And the Maplewood Playhouse race might be the last time I do the show in South Florida before my Off-Broadway race in the fall.”

“A fun show about marriage and relationships. Check it out!”
Ray Romano (“Everybody Loves Raymond”)
