THE PREACHER AND THE SHRINK to Close 12/22 Off-Broadway
THE PREACHER AND THE SHRINK by Merle Good will end its run Sunday, December 22nd at 3 PM at The Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row, 410 West 42nd Street. Under the direction of Steven Yuhasz, THE PREACHER AND THE SHRINK features three-time Tony nominee Dee Hoty (Mamma Mia!, The Will Rogers Follies, City of Angels, "Elementary"), Tom Galantich (Mamma Mia!, City of Angels, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Boeing-Boeing), Mat Hostetler (War Horse, "Boardwalk Empire," "White Collar"), Adria Vitlar (The Columnist, Blood and Gifts), and Nicholas Urda (Love's Labour's Lost).
In THE PREACHER AND THE SHRINK, a spirited young woman makes a sexual accusation which checkmates her father, a respected and popular pastor. They have been estranged for years by a deep grief. Will she follow through? Will he fight back? Even the psychiatrist who tries to help becomes conflicted when middle age romance develops. THE PREACHER AND THE SHRINK unwraps these struggles with startling consequences.
