Melissa James Gibson's new play "This" is the final production of the 2010-2011 season at the Douglas Theatre. The show began previews on July 31 and will run through August 28, 2011.

Daniel Aukin is the director of "This," which Charles Isherwood of The New York Times called a ". . . tart, melancholy comedy about a group of close friends entering the choppy waters of middle age," . . . a story told with ". . . scintillating verbal humor, honesty and a keen compassion that upends conventions and avoids the predictable at every turn."

At the heart of the play is Jane, a single mom in her late 30s who has shut down after her husband's death. Her good friends are determined to lift her out of her inertia with the warmth and love and humor of all their years together, but in the process everyone comes face to face with their own vulnerabilities and tries to make sense of unsettling transitions in life. Last night the show opened at the Kirk Douglas Theatre - view photos from the opening night below!
