News   PHOTO CALL: Dana Delaney, Tony Shalhoub and More Celebrate Opening Night at The Escort, Starring Polly Draper and Maggie Siff
 
Maggie Siff of "Mad Men" and Polly Draper of "thirtysomething" star in the Geffen Playhouse world premiere of Jane Anderson's The Escort, a play that "combines the two oldest professions: theatre and prostitution," which opened April 6.

The Escort, which began previews March 29 and plays through May 8 under the direction of Lisa Peterson, "follows the relationship between Charlotte, a high-class call girl played by Maggie Siff and Rhona, her Upper West Side gynecologist, played by Polly Draper."

Here is a look at the opening night:

James Eckhouse (CTG's The Goat, "Beverly Hills 90210") doubles as Rhona's self-righteous liberal ex-husband and one of Charlotte's johns, and Los Angeles theatre newcomer Gabriel Sunday ("Taking Woodstock") doubles as Rhona's manipulative teenage son and a seductive male escort.

The Escort is the Geffen Playhouse's second commission from Emmy Award-winning screenwriter (HBO's "Normal" and "The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader Murdering Mom") and playwright Jane Anderson.
