The Ringwald Theater and Compulsion Dance & Theater present a reading of the romantic comedy MARRY ME, DENNIS BRANIGAN written by Michael Mizerany.

MARRY ME, DENNIS BRANIGAN is inspired by the screwball comedies of the 30’s and 40’s. Dennis is having a hard time dealing with the loss of his fiance Scott. He doesn’t want to date but his overbearing yet well-intentioned sister Susan has other ideas. She sets him up on a blind date with a cutie named Quint. To make matters worse, Dennis’ dearly departed fiancee returns as a ghost. Seen only by him, Scott meddles in Dennis’ life, leading his family and friends to believe he is going bat crap crazy.

Michael Mizerany is best known as an award winning choreographer and director in San Diego. Most recently, he has branched out into playwriting. His plays have been presented at The Abyss Theater in Florida, The Flight Theater in Los Angeles, 10th Avenue Arts Complex and Diversionary Black Box Theater in San Diego. His short play, 20 MINUTES & COUNTING won the Best Writing Award at the 2016 San Diego International Fringe Festival.

Also, you might remember Michael’s satirical play, JOHNNY & BABS vs THE APOCALYPSE, as part of the Ringwald Theater’s Gay4Detroit New Play Festival.
