One of the most beloved television families of the 1980s takes to the stage. Playing June 1 - 25, 2017
If there’s anything I’m an expert of, it would be TV shows. A large percentage of my life has been spent in front of the small screen watching a wide variety of programs (except for ‘Imaginary Mary’). On the short list of my all-time favorite sitcoms is ‘Family Ties,’ so I was thrilled that it was being brought back to life with a play at The Loft. Whenever a beloved series is restored though, there’s a risk that it will fall short of the set expectations. Fans of ‘Baywatch’ are leaving theatres disappointed with the recent movie, but this staged version of Family Ties will satisfy those who hold a special place in their heart for the Keaton’s.
Twenty years have passed and Alex P. Keaton, now running for Congress, returns to his parents' Columbus home with his sisters, Mallory and Jennifer, who are parents of their own. Gathered together once again, they relive some of the most important moments from their childhood - the growing pains, heartbreaks and reconciliations - with fondness and appreciation for simpler times that defined a generation. By Daniel Goldstein, based on the CBS television series.
