PHOTO CALL: Roundabout's Dinner With Friends Opens Off-Broadway
By Joseph Marzullo
The Roundabout Theatre Company production of Donald Margulies' Dinner With Friends, which stars Jeremy Shamos, Darren Pettie, Marin Hinkle and Heather Burns, officially opened Feb. 13, following previews that began Jan. 17, at the Laura Pels Theatre.
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).
