Claire Leville of New Canaan is a member of the cast in the Curtain Call's production of "The Goodbye Girl," playing at The Kweskin Theatre at the Sterling Farms Theatre Complex, 1349 Newfield Ave., Stamford.

Leville also worked in Curtain Call's "Annie" and "Annie Warbucks" in 2010 and 2011, respectively.

"The Goodbye Girl" will play through Oct. 6. Performances are Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. There are two Thursday performances at 8 p.m. on Sept. 27 and Oct. 4.

"The Goodbye Girl" turns the 1977 film comedy into an adventure about love and commitment. It follows the unlikely romance between Paula, a bitter, single mother who has been jilted one too many times, and Elliot, the opinionated actor who shows up -- unexpectedly -- on her doorstep with a lease to sublet her apartment. The score is by Marvin Hamlisch and David Zippel.

Directing this production is Curtain Call veteran Ben Frimmer of Weston. His past directorial projects for the Stamford theater include "Thoroughly Modern Millie," "Hello Dolly," "Oliver" and others. Frimmer has also appeared on stage at Curtain Call and with several other area theater companies, in addition to heading the drama program at Coleytown Middle School in Westport.

Stamford actors Jeff Porper and Donna Fox play the leading roles in the production.
