“Fogel’s skill at sustaining the precariously balanced mix of comedy
and drama is impressive!”
~ Entertainment Weekly

LAKE WORTH, FL:  Maplewood Playhouse will present actor/comedian Peter Fogel’s multimedia solo show, ‘Til Death Do Us Part… You First, on Thursday, May 19th and Friday, May 20th at the Stage West Theatre in Lake Worth.

Eternal Bachelor Peter Fogel has significant commitment issues as the love of his life has just broken up with him on Valentine’s Day. Sensing his own mortality, he is visited by a Special Guest who gets into Fogel’s head and acts as his Conscience (Chazz Palminteri in a voice-over). Throughout the story, Palminteri mentors Fogel on how he can end all his romantic disasters and reconnect with the one woman who can change his life! 

Directed by Academy Award nominee and three-time Emmy Award-winner Chazz Palminteri (A Bronx Tale), Fogel employs his signature wit to bring to life such relatable characters as Russian Ex-Girlfriend Irina, Magician & Ex-Fiancé Jamie, High Maintenance Marla, his college roommate “Uncle” Harold, plus his Demented Father and Evil Step-Mom Eva. They all have one goal – to continue to stress him out about his unfilled love life!  “The longest relationship I’ve had in my entire life is with Amazon’s Alexa!” Fogel laments.

“The Stage West Theatre is really intimate which will give me and the audience a greater comedic connection,” Fogel says. “And after being on a Post Pandemic tour around the U.S. it’ll be fun to be back in South Florida, which is where I originally workshopped the show – and where my director, Chazz Palminteri discovered me.”

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

Til Death is a show within a show,” Fogel explains. “and I get to be directed by Chazz – plus act with him on stage.

“The show is updated and funnier than ever.  After a successful run up in the Villages, audiences want to get back to laughing and enjoying live theater,” he continues. “And the Maplewood Playhouse run might be the last time I do the show in South Florida before my Off-Broadway run in the fall.”

“A funny show about marriage and relationships.  Go see it!” 
Ray Romano (“Everybody Loves Raymond”)
