The New Group celebrated the world premiere of Sharr White’s new drama at the Signature Center September 20.
The New Group's world-premiere production of Sharr White’s The True opened Off-Broadway September 20. In the new play, Edie Falco (The Sopranos, Nurse Jackie) stars as Dorothea "Polly” Noonan, the blunt, profane, decades-long defender of Albany’s Democratic Party machine.
The True is billed as an intimate portrait of the bounds of love, loyalty, and female power in the male-dominated world of 1977 patronage politics. Artistic Director Scott Elliott directs.
Performances of The True began September 4 at The Pershing Square Signature Center in The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre, where the production has been extended through October 28.
