As in Wonder of the World and Rabbit Hole, previous works of David Lindsay-Abaire, the playwright is not afraid to go to extremes to make a point. World is exceedingly comedic, Hole far more serious, but both have characters who find their way via a path less tread. Such is also the case with his dramedy Good People. Southie Margie (Jane Kaczmarek) makes a choice to pay an unusual visit to her 'lace curtain' former boyfriend, Mike (Jon Tenney), now a successful doctor in the suburbs. She finds that as polite as he is, he wants little to do with her, yet insists on practically inviting herself to his posh home for a party, and when he calls to cancel, she shows up anyway. Talk about guts! Southies - from South Boston - have them in spades, as we can see from her two gossipy chums landlady Dottie (Marylouise Burke) and Jean (Sara Botsford), who trash just about anyone and everyone as they hang out playing bingo. Now onstage at the Geffen, Good People gets a deservedly stunning production with great direction from Matt Shakman and a sterling ensemble.
The Geffen Playhouse presents David Lindsay-Abaire's Good People, starring Jane Kaczmarek (Broadway's Lost in Yonkers and television's Malcolm in the Middle), and acclaimed stage and screen actor Jon Tenney, last seen at the Geffen Playhouse in David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow. Presented by One West Bank, Good People began previews yesterday, April 3, 2012 and officially opens in the Gil Cates Theater at the Geffen Playhouse on April 11, 2012.
