A Journey Through Laughter and Romance: Little Me Comes to TheatreZone



In the heart of Naples, Florida, a comedic extravaganza is set to take the stage, promising audiences an unforgettable experience filled with laughter, romance, and a touch of glamour. Neil Simon’s classic musical, Little Me, is making its debut at TheatreZone on March 7th, bringing to life the hilarious escapades of the unforgettable Belle Poitrine.


Adapted from Patrick Dennis's novel, "Little Me: The Intimate Memoirs of that Great Star of Stage, Screen and Television, Belle Poitrine," this production transports viewers through Belle’s whimsical 50-year journey from humble beginnings to high society. Directed by Mark Danni and choreographed by Karen Molnar Danni, this rendition of Little Me promises to be a night of pure entertainment.


The musical's narrative follows Belle Poitrine’s pursuit of a more glamorous life, filled with romance and adventure. From her origins in Drifter’s Row to her pursuit of the affluent Noble Eggleston, Belle's journey is one filled with love affairs, marriages, and a quest for acceptance in high society.


One of the most remarkable aspects of Little Me is its unique portrayal of the seven men in Belle’s life, all portrayed by a single performer. Adolpho Blaire, a seasoned actor from New York, takes on this challenging role, seamlessly transitioning between characters with flair and finesse. From bankers to Hollywood directors, Blaire embodies each persona with precision, capturing the essence of Belle’s romantic entanglements.


The casting for Belle Poitrine is equally stellar, with Lauren Culver stepping into the role with grace and comedic talent. Culver’s performance promises to enchant audiences as she navigates Belle’s evolution from a wide-eyed dreamer to a seasoned socialite, all while delivering show-stopping musical numbers and comedic moments.
