Patty Caroli, one of Marco Island’s most beloved actors, will revive the role at the Arts Center Theatre after having received notoriety in a previous production in Naples.
“We’re excited we were able to obtain the rights,” said Hyla Crane, executive director of the Marco Island Center for the Arts as well as the Arts Center Theatre. Charlie Blum, the chair of the Arts Center Theatre committee commented, “Having Patti reprise her exceptional performance in a previous production was something we wanted to do in the early planning stages for the season. Unfortunately, she was not able to work initially with the schedule so we were overjoyed to be able to actually make this happen in our inaugural season.”
