The Marriage of Bette and Boo will began previews on June 13th and opened officially, last night, Thursday July 10th, 2008, Off-Broadway at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46 Street).  This is a limited engagement through September 7th, 2008.
 
The design team includes David Korins (Sets), Susan Hilferty (Costumes), Donald Holder (Lights) and Nevin Steinberg (Sound).
 
The Marriage of Bette and Boo is a dark comedy that takes a look at the complex marriage of Bette and Boo.  Three decades of marriage, divorce, alcoholism, nervous breakdowns and death – all blended in a unique mix of irony, humor and farce – are played out in 33 quick scenes.

Walter Bobbie returns to Roundabout after directing the 2003 Broadway production of Twentieth Century, starring Alec Baldwin and Anne Heche, and featuring The Marriage of Bette & Boo cast member Terry Beaver. John Glover returns to Roundabout and the Laura Pels Theatre after the 2004 production of The Paris Letter. Many other cast members are returning Roundabout artists; Victoria Clark was featured in the Tony winning production of Cabaret, Adam Lefevre returns after the 1996 production of Summer and Smoke and Christopher Evan Welch appeared in the 2001 production of A Skull in Connemara.

The Marriage of Bette and Boo premiered Off-Broadway in May 1985 and won a number of Obie Awards including one for Durang for playwriting.  The play also won the Dramatists Guild Hull Warriner Award.
