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. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the press opening and brings you photo coverage below!

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.

Marie and Bruce plays at The New Group @ Theatre Row (The Acorn Theatre / 410 West 42nd Street, between 9th & 10th Aves) as follows: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday at 7:00 PM and Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 8:00 PM. Matinees Saturday at 2:00 PM. Tickets may be arranged through www.telecharge.com or (212) 239-6200, or at the Theatre Row Box Office (12-8 PM daily). Tickets are $60.00 plus $1.25 restoration fee.
