Performances continue through April 13 at the Laura Pels in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street).
Directed by Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon (Clybourne Park, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), the Pulitzer Prize-winning work features Tony Award nominee Shamos (Clybourne Park, Glengarry Glen Ross, The Assembled Parties) as Gabe, Pettie (Butley) as Tom, Hinkle ("Two and a Half Men," Electra) as Karen and Burns (Signature Theatre Company's Medieval Play) as Beth.
According to the Roundabout, "Ever since Karen (Hinkle) and Gabe (Shamos) played matchmaker with their friends Beth (Burns) and Tom (Pettie), the two couples have been inseparable—going to the Vineyard every summer, raising their kids and enjoying countless dinners together. But when one marriage unexpectedly crumbles, the couples' lives begin to veer in opposite directions. Can these four friends move on to the next chapter without moving apart… or have they changed beyond recognition?"
The design team includes Allen Moyer (sets), Ilona Somogyi (costumes), Jane Cox (lights) and Joshua Schmidt (original music and compositions).
When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life.
