pixeltracker

Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) announce the Manhattan Theatre Club world premiere of GOOD PEOPLE, the new play by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire, directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, now in previews at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street), has been extended due to popular demand.

The limited engagement of GOOD PEOPLE, which opens Thursday, March 3, will now play through Sunday, May 8.

The production stars Becky Ann Baker (All My Sons, Assassins), Patrick Carroll (Broadway debut), Tate Donovan ("Damages," Amy's View), Emmy Award nominee Renée Elise Goldsberry ("One Life to Live," Rent), Oscar winner Frances McDormand (Fargo, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, Almost Famous), and Oscar winner Estelle Parsons (August: Osage County, "Roseanne").

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo... where this month's paycheck covers last month's bills... and where Margie Walsh (McDormand) has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling (Donovan) who has made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out.

With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.

Together, David Lindsay-Abaire and MTC have brought four outstanding new plays to the New York stage. Their most recent collaboration with director Daniel Sullivan, Rabbit Hole, earned a Tony Award and garnered Lindsay-Abaire the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

The creative team for GOOD PEOPLE includes: John Lee Beatty (scenic design), David Zinn (costume design), Pat Collins (lighting design), Jill BC DuBoff (sound design), Charlotte Fleck (dialect coach), and David Caparelliotis (casting).

GOOD PEOPLE began previews on Tuesday, February 8 with tickets on sale through Sunday, May 8.
