Heather Burns Joins Cast of Roundabout's DINNER WITH FRIENDS
Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) announced that Heather Burns ("Bored to Death") will join the company in the role of "Beth". Maria Dizzia departed the production before rehearsals began, for personal reasons. Dinner with Friends by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies, directed by Tony Award® winner Pam MacKinnon will also feature Marin Hinkle as "Karen", Darren Pettie as "Tom," and Jeremy Shamos as "Gabe."
Performances begin on January 17, 2014 and opening night is February 13, 2014 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?
Wryly funny and richly layered, Dinner with Friends is a modern masterpiece about the path you choose, the millions you don't and the detours that make it worth the ride.
Dinner with Friends won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
