Directed by and starring Jeanna Michaels, Cohen, whose television career includes Army Wives, When Calls the Heart and Melrose Place,tells the story of life in a Florida retirement community where days are filled with cards, bragging about grandchildren, comparing ailments and eating early. But, can two people find love, especially if they’re in-laws?”
“West Palm Prime is a truly heartwarming story about love, loneliness, friends and the difficult but rewarding process of uncovering true feelings,” Michaels said. “It’s really about life and we’re sure many in our audience will see themselves on stage.”
