An operatic production of Gilligan’s Island to be staged at Liberty State Park is now being planned. A diamond with many facets, this will be part reality show, part drama, part tragedy, part comedy, and part farce — just like Jersey City is each and every day any which way. This jewel in a week long festival setting will establish Jersey City as the Bayreuth on the Hudson (That’s pronounced “BUYroit,” not “Buyright” or “Beirut” — with all the 99 cent stores and street corner shootouts we’ve already got those last two covered.) and will mean prosperity for all. (For those that need like the Strange Interlude small print, “prosperity for all” boils down to some one percenters in New York raking in the big bucks, union guys from the suburbs doing all right, and last but nearly naught least menial minimum wage jobs dropped on the backs of the locals.)
The part of The Skipper will be offered to Ray Lesniak. Suggestions and applications for the other roles are being accepted.
