The first major New York production in more than thirty years, THE COUNTRY GIRL is a classic backstage story. The title character, Georgie (Frances McDormand), is married to actor Frank Elgin (Morgan Freeman), once a great theatre star, now down on his luck. When Frank is offered a major role by hotshot director Bernie Dodd (Peter Gallagher), he has the chance to make a major comeback. For more information please visit www.thecountrygirlonbroadway.com
