Encore Theatre Co. announced its upcoming production of “Crossing Delancey” by Susan Sandler.

The romantic comedy, directed by Sara Dhom, will open May 3 and run weekends through May 12. Friday and Saturday shows will start at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday matinees will start at 2:30 p.m. The house will open 30 minutes before show time.

In “Crossing Delancey,” Isabel is a modern young woman who lives alone and works in a bookshop. When she isn’t pining after a handsome author, she is visiting her grandmother, “Bubbie,” in Manhattan’s lower east side. This irascible granny and her friend, the matchmaker, have found a “catch” for Isabel, whose initial reluctance gives way to a blossoming romance when she finally meets Sam, the pickle vendor, as the end of the play offers a new beginning.

Tickets are $16 for adults and $13 for seniors 60 and older. For tickets, visit To reserve seats and pay at the door, call 615-598-8950. Encore Theatre Co. is at 6978 Lebanon Road, just east of State Route 109, in Mt. Juliet.

The play is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
