Hawaii Five-O heartthrob Scott Caan demonstrates he’s more than just an appealing actor and cute hunk. He is also a playwright and will star in the world premiere of his dark romantic comedy No Way Around But Through at the Falcon Theatre beginning June 3, 2012. A co-presentation of the Falcon and The Mineral Theater Company the production is directed by Val Lauren and also stars Bre Blair (Make It Or Break, NCIS), Robyn Cohen (Gravity, The Life Aquatic), Lainie Kazan (My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Desperate Housewives) and Lauren (24,Sal).
“When Jacob (Caan) discovers that his girlfriend Holly (Cohen) might be pregnant, he drags his friend Frank (Lauren) into the maddening wormhole that is his psyche, a venture that lands them on the doorstep of Lulu (Kazan), Jacob’s mother and the matriarch of madness herself. However, Holly and her friend Rachel (Blair) are one step ahead of them. No Way Around But Through is a dark, thoughtful and quirky romantic comedy about facing the inevitable dysfunctions of life and love head-on, and a reminder to never let where you’ve been get in the way of where you’re going.”
