News   PHOTO CALL: Dead Man's Cell Phone Opens Off-Broadway
Sarah Ruhl's Dead Man's Cell Phone officially opened March 4 Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons. Tony Award winner Mary-Louise Parker stars.

Anne Bogart directed the New York City staging with Parker leading a cast that also includes T. Ryder Smith, Kathleen Chalfant, David Aaron Baker, Carla Harting and Kelly Maurer. According to production notes, "Gordon is dead, but his cell phone lives on. When Jean (Parker), an empathetic museum worker, answers his ringing phone beside her in a café, she is soon playing unwitting comforter and confessor to the man's grieving friends and family. Before she knows it, Jean is ensnarled in the underbelly of the dead man's bizarre life."

Playwrights Horizons artistic director Tim Sanford and other theatre folk were on hand to celebrate the opening night with cast and creatives at the West Bank Cafe.
