Robert Beitzel, Halley Feiffer and More Star in Atlantic Theater's WOMEN OR NOTHING, Beg. Tonight
Academy Award winning filmmaker Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men) returns to Atlantic to open the season with his fourth world premiere, and first full length play, following his acclaimed productions of Almost an Evening, Offices and Happy Hour. He has made fifteen movies with his brother Joel, including the Academy Award winning films No Country for Old Men and Fargo; O Brother, Where Art Thou?; Raising Arizona; Barton Fink; The Hudsucker Proxy; The Big Lebowski; Burn After Reading and True Grit.
Director David Cromer recently staged the Off Broadway productions of Nikolai and the Others, Really Really and Tribes. He was honored with both the Lucille Lortel and Obie Award for his staging of the unanimously acclaimed Off-Broadway production of Our Town, in which he also starred as the Stage Manager. Broadway credits include the revivals of Brighton Beach Memoirs and The House of the Blue Leaves. His hit production of Adding Machine: A Chamber Musical, transferred Off Broadway from his native Chicago, garnering him an Obie Award and Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Direction.
Featuring: Robert Beitzel (Off Broadway's In Masks Outrageous and Austere, David Cromer's production of Our Town); Halley Feiffer (Broadway's The House of the Blue Leaves); Susan Pourfar (Off Broadway's Tribes, ABC series "Scandal"); and Tony Award nominee Deborah Rush (Broadway's Blithe Spirit, TV's "Orange is the New Black").
WOMEN OR NOTHING is a play about two women so desperate to have a child that one of them will even sleep with a man. Who the man is, what he thinks is going on, what the women think about what he thinks, and what the mother of one of the women reveals about her own colorful past-it all defies belief. Why then does it all make sense?
