Manhattan Theatre Club's world premiere of David Lindsay-Abaire's GOOD PEOPLE, the critically acclaimed new American play directed by Daniel Sullivan, plays through Sunday, May 29. The production had previously been on sale through Sunday, May 8. In the video below, Tate Donovan visits 'Talk Stoop' to discuss his involvement in the show.
GOOD PEOPLE opened on Thursday, March 3 to rave reviews from critics and enthusiastic responses from audiences.
Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo... where this month's paycheck covers last month's bills... and where Margie Walsh (McDormand) has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling (Donovan) who has made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out.
With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.
Together, David Lindsay-Abaire and MTC have brought four outstanding new plays to the New York stage. Their most recent collaboration with director Daniel Sullivan, Rabbit Hole, earned a Tony Award and garnered Lindsay-Abaire the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
The creative team for GOOD PEOPLE includes: John Lee Beatty (scenic design), David Zinn (costume design), Pat Collins (lighting design), Jill BC DuBoff (sound design), Charlotte Fleck (dialect coach), and David Caparelliotis (casting).
