PHOTO CALL: Becky Shaw at the Huntington

News   PHOTO CALL: Becky Shaw at the Huntington Wendy Hoopes stars in the title role of Gina Gionfriddo's dramatic comedy Becky Shaw at the Huntington Theatre Company's home in Boston.

"In Becky Shaw," Huntington notes state, "newly-married Suzanna and Andrew set up Suzanna's lifelong best friend, the sharp-tongued money manager Max, with Andrew's romantically-challenged, seemingly fragile co-worker, Becky. Despite good intentions, the blind date goes so badly that it ends at a police station. As their friends attempt to navigate their way through a complex emotional jungle, Suzanna and Andrew are forced to confront the instability of their marriage, and Suzanna is thrown into further turmoil by her caustic mother Susan's clear-eyed observations about the family. The moral ground shifts time and time again as crisis and comedy ensue, and a series of events are set into motion that forever change everyone's lives…" In addition to Hoopes (Love Janis), the cast features Maureen Anderman (The Sisters Rosenswieg, Rabbit Hole) as Susan, Seth Fisher (Rock 'n' Roll, Julius Caesar) as Max, Eli James (The Four of Us) as Andrew and Keira Naughton (The Rivals, Three Sisters) as Suzanna.
