The Life and Love of Joe Coogan
Composer:Paul Salerni
Librettist:Kate Light
Synopsis
Time: 1964. Place: New York City and New Rochelle, a suburb.
A moment of comic insecurity in the usually happy marriage of TV comedy writer Rob Petrie and his wife Laura. When Rob learns that the tall, good-looking man named Joe Coogan that he has just met on a public golf course was once in love with Laura, courting her by writing love sonnets, he becomes uncharacteristically jealous and insecure. When Laura invites Joe to dinner, Rob counters by inviting co-writer Sally Rogers to flirt with Joe. Unbeknownst to Rob, Joe is now a priest! The mix-up leads to a zany dinner party and a surprise ending.
