Mother, daughter and boy toy? In The Graduate, Kathleen Turner and Alicia Silverstone star as Mrs. Robinson and her daughter Elaine with Jason Biggs as the hapless, lost Benjamin who comes between them.
The Graduate is written by Terry Johnson, adapted from the original novel by Charles Webb and the motion picture screenplay by Calder Willingham and Buck Henry. Audiences will recognize several scenes taken virtually verbatim from the film script. However, there are also a few sequences which were not in the movie at all, including various exchanges between Benjamin and his parents and, significantly, a scene in which Elaine and her mother get falling down drunk. Johnson also directs the comedy, which opened April 4 at the Plymouth Theatre.
