Photo Flash: First Look at Rebecca Henderson, Phyllis Somerville and More in Roundabout's TOO MUCH, TOO MUCH, TOO MANY
Roundabout Theatre Company's Underground production of Too Much, Too Much, Too Many, a new play by Meghan Kennedy, began previews on Friday, October 25th and officially opens on Wednesday, November 20, 2013 at Roundabout's Black Box Theatre, at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street, NYC, NY, 10036). This is a limited engagement through January 5, 2014. The cast of Too Much, Too Much, Too Many includes Rebecca Henderson, Luke Kirby, James Rebhorn, and Phyllis Somerville, directed by Sheryl Kaller. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
Following the death of her husband (Rebhorn), Rose (Somerville) locks herself in her bedroom for the better part of a year, leaving her daughter Emma (Henderson) to care for her through the closed door. When the church sends a pastor (Kirby) to help coax Rose out of her room, he soon finds that Rose is not the only one using barriers to hide her true feelings.
Bittersweet, poignant and touchingly funny, Too Much, Too Much, Too Many, a compelling new drama by Meghan Kennedy, is about the walls we build to protect our hearts--and deciding when it's time to break them down.
Too Much, Too Much, Too Many launches the seventh season of Roundabout Underground, an initiative to showcase new plays that will either allow an experienced director to go back to his/her creative roots or give a debut production to an emerging writer or director.
