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

This is such a fun show! From the minute the lights went off, the audience was laughing out loud non-stop. It seemed as if at any given moment you forgot about the actors presence and truly believe it was the puppets making the jokes; that's how good the cast is! If you're looking to have a great time at the theater, this show is a must see. Such a shame it is such a short run this time around!
One note: To ALL the people I've noticed that tend to start making their way out as soon as the show finishes and before the cast comes back to greet the audience: STOP IT! It is RUDE to the rest of the audience & to the cast of actors that has just entertained you for the past 2.5hrs. The least you can do is show your appreciation for their hard work. Giving them a well-deserved round of applause equals saying Thank You!
Bonus: I ran into half of the cast while on the Metro on my way back home last night. They were all very polite and energetic. Kudos!
