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:
Dana Delaney, Tony Shalhoub and More Celebrate Opening Night at The Escort, Starring Polly Draper and Maggie Siff
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.
