Your Florida Fantasy

By Zachary Michael Jack

April 13-22, 2018

Directed by Barry Cavin

 

All hail college student genius Matthew Mullenberg, the “Mark Zuckerberg of Kalamazoo, Michigan” and his red-hot Internet start-up YourFloridaFantasy.com. For weeks, the “Matt-man” and his not-so-crack staff—Jerry, Penny, and Ariel—have burned the midnight oil cooking up the perfect beta version of a real-life fantasy set on a southwest Florida barrier island for the mysterious Client X. Once booked into Rusty’s Castaway Cabins, the employees of YourFloridaFantasy find themselves playing unexpected roles in the romantic drama their storyboard set in motion, and true love just won’t stay on script! Ushered into island life by their inimitable senior citizen innkeeper Rusty Hinge, forced to walk the plank by Rusty’s red-hot flame, Ally Monet, and sent on a wild goose chase by the slippery and salty Lee High Acres, the whiz kids behind YourFloridaFantasy.com must find their love lights in a sea of outrageous comedy. Add a prodigiously endowed pirate, a punctual saltwater croc, a vertiginous rodeo queen from Punta Gorda via Punta Rassa, a life-sized Hug-a-hunk-a-love-bear, a peculiarly picky pickpocket, and a precipitous big blow bearing down on Rusty’s fantasy island beyond Pine Island Sound, and this homegrown romp of a rom-com blossoms into a farcical, tropical tour de force.
