The New Group celebrated the official opening of its debut production of Sharr White’s The True 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.

The world premiere 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 New Group Artistic Director Scott Elliott directs a cast completed by Austin Cauldwell, Glenn Fitzgerald, Michael McKean, John Pankow, Peter Scolari, and Tracy Shayn.
