Guss’ Pickles had the movie poster on its window, Oct. 2009

Crossing Delancey, the beloved 1988 romantic comedy starring Amy Irving, is leaving New York and taking the stage only a stones throw away – Stamford, Connecticut.

Originally a book by Susan Sandler, the film that basically put the Lower East Side on the silver screen has recently been adapted into a play, thanks to Producer Lou Ursone and Director Carole Claps.

“With our world turned upside down, and people looking to just get back to some sense of normalcy, this show couldn’t have been planned more perfectly. It’s all about family, friendships and love, with a few pickles thrown in for good measure. This heart warming production is one that the entire family will enjoy,” Claps said in a statement.

The show runs at The Dressing Room Theater, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00PM, and Sunday afternoons at 2:00PM, now through October 17. Ticket information can be found here.
