Creating professional musical theatre using only six actors or fewer, the recently hatched and aptly named Intimate Theatre Productions delights audiences with the offbeat romantic comedy The Girl in the Frame. Inside engaged couple Alex and Laney’s cozy New York apartment, the inhabitants of store-bought picture frames come to life. Evelyn, an alluring girl-next-door type, and Tomás, a strapping firefighter, tempt the duo in unexpectedly hilarious ways while prompting them to examine their own relationship and outlooks on love.
