Roundabout's DINNER WITH FRIENDS to Begin Previews Jan 17
Roundabout Theatre Company has announced that Dinner with Friends by Pulitzer Prize winnerDonald Margulies, directed by Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon will open on February 13, 2014. The cast will include Jeremy Shamos as "Gabe," Darren Pettie as "Tom", Marin Hinkle as "Karen," and Maria Dizzia as "Beth."
Performances will begin on January 17, 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 (Dizzia) 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.
