The New Group's world-premiere production of Sharr White’s The True opens Off-Broadway September 20. In the new play, Edie Falco (Oz, The Sopranos) stars as Dorothea "Polly” Noonan, the blunt, profane, decades-long defender of Albany’s Democratic Party machine.
The True is billed as an intimate portrait of the bounds of love, loyalty, and female power in the male-dominated world of 1977 patronage politics. Artistic Director Scott Elliott directs.
Performances of The True began September 4 at The Pershing Square Signature Center in The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre, where the production has been extended through October 28.
The production reunites playwright White with The New Group following the 2014 production of White’s play Annapurna starring Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman, and directed by Bart DeLorenzo.
