Welcome Back Robert Hegyes in New Forum Production


Hedyes.jpegMetuchen's own Robert Hegyes is set to star in a new comedy at the Forum this fall (opening October 27th):



(or if 50 is the new 30, why didn't somebody tell my ASS!)

-A hilarious new comedy by Eric Cohen, Directed by Peter J. Loewy


Does that mean 70 is the new 50 and dead is the new 90?  According to your unemployed son currently residing on your living room Barcalounger, is 24 the new 12? Eric Cohen's new play, The New 30, takes a hilarious, irreverent look at our culture's obsession with looking and acting decades younger than our real age. Check out the Forum website for tickets and additional information.

Robert Hegyes:  A Metuchen High School grad, Robert went out to L.A. and made his mark as Juan Epstein on the hit sitcom 'Welcome Back Kotter'.  Since then, he has starred opposite Tyne Daly on Cagney and Lacey; The Drew Carey Show; Law and Order; and Saturday Night Live.  On stage, he toured nationally in An Evening With Groucho.


Eric Cohen began his television career writing for The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson, ultimately becoming Johnny's head monologue writer.  He was also one of the original creator-writer-producers of the hit teen classic Welcome Back Kotter. His extensive writing and producing credits also include the prime time classics, Laverne & Shirley, The Golden Girls, and Everybody Loves Raymond (not to mention the forgotten gems like Mr. T and Tina).  He wrote and produced The Nanny, The Redd Foxx Show, and Amen - starring Sherman Helmsley.  Eric Cohen has received multiple Emmy nominations for his distinguished work.  He was also a Humanitus Award finalist.  His most recent production, which he created and executive produced for the Disney Channel, starred The Olsen Twins.

You obviously have no sense of humor. I agree with you let the audience make their minds up for themselves, however my experience in the theatre and my ability to read scripts and know what is funny or not is far superior to a professional blogger like yourself. I would not be producing the show if I didn't think it was "hilarious". Put your money where your mouth is and buy a ticket before you make false statements.

It also is deplorable to critique a show before it's even up on stage with all the theatrical elements in place. And I stand by the fact that you did not read the script.

Once again my phone number is 732.548.5600
peter@forumtheatrearts.com or you can continue being a coward and hide behind your screen name.

It's not a lie at all-my brief comment was 100% true and accurate. Maybe I just got lucky or maybe you need to tighten your security.

I do not have a problem with the Forum, although I do think it's presumptuous to deem the play "hilarious." That is the audience's decision and theirs alone.

One of the best qualities of the internet is the ability for consumers to advise each other on any product whether it's an appliance or a movie or a play. If you think you can impede or censor that I'd advise you to think again.

I don't know who you are pdog, but you know as well as I that the script has not been published. Only the author, Bobby and I have a copy.
Your comment is a lie.

The show is a hilarious telling of what we do to stay young after 50. Tickets are on sale now.

If you have a problem with The Forum Theatre I suggest you come out from behind your basically anonymous moniker and speak with me directly.

But please keep your lies off this site.

I can be reached at 732.548.5600 or peter@forumtheatrearts.com

I read the script. Didn't make me laugh once.

He was at Car Night last week.
