Linda Lavin and Sarah Paulson, stars of the upcoming Manhattan Theatre Club Broadway premiere of Donald Margulies' Collected Stories, met the press March 12.
Golden Globe nominee Paulson ("Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip") and Tony Award winner Lavin (Broadway Bound, "Alice") will star as Lisa and Ruth, respectively. MTC artistic director Lynne Meadow directs the Margulies work that had its New York City premiere with MTC Off-Broadway in 1997.
According to MTC, the play centers on "the tale of an aging writer and her young protégé. As their relationship evolves and the line between fact and fiction blurs, their fascinating story comes to a dramatic conclusion."
The prolific producer, along with frequent collaborator Neil Meron, was behind such musical-driven projects as Smash, NBC’s live musicals, and the Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
