We welcomed back actors Darren Pettie and Marin Hinkle back to the Roundabout stage. Darren last appeared at Roundabout in 2011's The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore and Marin appeared in our 1996 production of A Thousand Clowns. Jeremy Shamos who has joined us for in-house and donor playreadings took to the Roundabout stage for his first full production and Heather Burns and director Pam MacKinnon joined us for the first time.

Dinner With Friends, directed by Tony winner Pam MacKinnon received rave reviews from New York Magazine, The New York Times and Time Out New York. Audience members praised the "thought-provoking writing" and "seamless, heartfelt performances."

We filmed a dinner conversation about the show between Artistic Director Todd Haimes, director Pam MacKinnon and playwright Donald Margulies. Moderated by NY1's Theater Critic, Roma Torre the discussion included questions posed by you on Facebook. Watch the complete video series below.

Education at Roundabout provided weekly pre-show talks with historical and biographical information about Dinner With Friends and the artists involved. At each post-show talk the entire cast came out to share stories and answer audience questions. Our Dinner With Friends Upstage Guide contains artist interviews and dramaturgical information such as notable marriage-centric plays from the last hundred years and the thread of food throughout the production.
