Roundabout's DINNER WITH FRIENDS Opens Tomorrow Night

Roundabout's DINNER WITH FRIENDS Opens Tomorrow Night

Roundabout Theatre Company's production of Dinner with Friends by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies and directed by Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon, opens tomorrow, Thursday, February 13 at 7:00PM.

The cast features Heather Burns as "Beth", Marin Hinkle as "Karen", Darren Pettie as "Tom," and Jeremy Shamos as "Gabe."

Dinner with Friends performs at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street). This is a limited engagement through April 13, 2014.

Ever since Karen (Hinkle) and Gabe (Shamos) played matchmaker with their friends Beth (Burns) and Tom (Pettie), the two couples have been inseparable-going to the Vineyard every summer, raising their kids and enjoying countless dinners together. But when one marriage unexpectedly crumbles, the couples' lives begin to veer in opposite directions. Can these four friends move on to the next chapter without moving apart... or have they changed beyond recognition?

The design team includes Allen Moyer (Sets), Ilona Somogyi (Costumes), Jane Cox (Lights), and Josh Schmidt (Original Music & Compositions).

Dinner with Friends won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Major support for Dinner with Friends is provided by The Laura Pels International Foundation for Theater.
