PHOTO CALL: Durang's Marriage of Bette and Boo, with Clark and Glover

News   PHOTO CALL: Durang's Marriage of Bette and Boo, with Clark and Glover Roundabout Theatre Company's new Off-Broadway production of Christopher Durang's comedy The Marriage of Bette and Boo began performances June 12 at the Laura Pels Theatre.

The Durang favorite is described as "a dark comedy that takes a look at the complex marriage of Bette and Boo. Three decades of marriage, divorce, alcoholism, nervous breakdowns and death — all blended in a unique mix of irony, humor and farce — are played out in 33 quick scenes." Christopher Evan Welch (Festen, The Crucible with Laura Linney) and Kate Jennings Grant (Radiant Baby, Proof) are the central couple with Tony Award winners John Glover (Love! Valour! Compassion!) and Victoria Clark (The Light in the Piazza) starring, respectively, as their in-laws, Karl Hudlocke and Margaret Brennan.

The cast also features Terry Beaver (Father Donnally), Heather Burns (Emily Brennan), Julie Hagerty (Soot Hudlocke), Adam Lefevre (Paul Brennan), Zoe Lister-Jones (Joan Brennan) and Charles Socarides (Matt).

The production is helmed by Walter Bobbie, whose last directorial credit with Roundabout was the 2003 Broadway production of Twentieth Century.
