The New Group presents the first major New York revival of Wallace Shawn's Marie and Bruce in a limited Off-Broadway engagement through May 7. Directed by Scott Elliott, this production features Marisa Tomei as Marie and Frank Whaley as Bruce. Official Opening Night is set for Tuesday, April 5 at 7:00 PM at The New Group @ Theatre Row.
Marie and Bruce recounts the day Marie finally resolves to tell her charming and impossibly positive husband Bruce that she's had enough. After a contentious morning in their apartment, Marie and Bruce embark on individual journeys through the city leading up to a dinner party that night. Wallace Shawn's Marie and Bruce contemplates a particular New York couple trapped in a marital mishmash of love, hate, caring and commitment.
