Photo Coverage: Brian F. O'Byrne, Annie Funke, Jake Gyllenhaal in IF THERE IS I HAVEN'T FOUND IT YET - Curtain Call
Roundabout Theatre Company's If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet featuring Annie Funke (Anna), Michelle Gomez (Fiona), Jake Gyllenhaal (Terry), and Brían F. O'Byrne (George), and directed by Michael Longhurst opened last night and BroadwayWorld.com was there to capture all of the excitement of opening night.
If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street) is a strictly limited engagement through November 25th, 2012.
Provocative, insightful and laced with fresh humor, If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet is an entertaining look at a regular family stuck somewhere between knowing what the problem is... and doing something about it.
Fifteen-year-old Anna's (Annie Funke) weight makes her a natural target for bullies. When her mom (Michelle Gomez) transfers Anna to the school where she teaches in order to protect her daughter, it only makes things worse. Anna's environmentalist dad (Brían F. O'Byrne), determined to finish his new book and save the planet, is no help at all. Just as Anna gets suspended for retaliating with a head-butt, her estranged uncle Terry (Jake Gyllenhaal) arrives unannounced. A heartbroken drifter with the mouth of a sailor, Terry reaches out to Anna in a way that no one ever has. Their unexpected friendship sends her parents' rocky marriage into a tailspin as the whole family wonders, what--or who--really needs saving?
