The haves and the have-nots come face-to-face in the Broadway hit Good People. Written by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole), this Tony-nominated dramatic comedy finds struggling single mother Margie Walsh laid off from her job at the dollar store and left with the reality that her South Boston neighborhood is providing the same level of opportunity it always has: none. It's the kind of place where, for many people, this month's paycheck covers last month's bills. Facing eviction, Maggie's forced to turn to an old high school flame for help. But he's now a successful physician living in the suburbs ... and Margie is way out of her element. With his signature humorous glow, David Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakable hope that come with having next to nothing in America. Learn More

Music by Cy Coleman

Written by Michael Bennett
Based on the play Two for the Seesaw by William Gibson
Adapted from William Gibson’s play Two for the Seesaw to the musical stage by Cy Coleman (score), Dorothy Fields (lyrics) and Michael Bennett (book), Seesaw received seven Tony® Award nominations (winning for Tommy Tune’s performance and Bennett’s choreography) and ran for a total of 296 performances. Seesaw was a show of firsts and lasts: launching the career of Tommy Tune and highlighting the ﬁnal lyrics of the great Dorothy Fields. Featuring pulsating Cy Coleman melodies (“It’s Not Where You Start, It’s Where You Finish”) and with 1970 era New York as the background, Seesaw tells the tale of a slightly square, not–quite single lawyer from the Midwest and an off-kilter would-be-dancer from the Bronx.
Seesaw will star Eydie Alyson as Gittel, Roger Befeler as Jerry and Steven Hack as David. The ensemble will feature MTG members Danny Bolero, Ron Christopher Jones and Melissa Lyons with guest artists Kari Lee Cartwright, Robyn Cohen, Lindsay MacDonald, Lowe Taylor and Jake Wesley Stewart. Seesaw will be directed and choreographed by Todd Nielsen with musical direction by Dean Mora and is produced for MTG by Eileen Barnett and Pamela Hamill.
