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

Rather than "A Bittersweet Black Comedy," a more appropriate description would be "A Cacophonous Assault on the Senses." Shelly Hacco's portrayal of Janice was perhaps the shrillest, most ear-splitting performance in the history of American Theater. My friend who accompanied me to the show summed it up best describing the whole experience as "a punishment."
Quotes & Highlights
“It was the best play I’ve seen in Los Angeles.” —LA Splash
“Certainly an original piece of work … an inventive mix of humor, creepiness and the bizarre … something truly different. The set design by Danny Cistone is fascinatingly askew with clever trap-doors, an innovative multi-level stage and details that reveal the characters’ inner turmoil. It’s one of the best designs I’ve seen in a long time. " —Frontiers in LA
“Crumble is a coming-of-age story about the power of love: love for a celebrity, love for your family, love for your home and love for your own life…Though it’s a bit kooky, the compelling mother-daughter-apartment relationship will keep you on the edge of your seat.” –-Daily Trojan
“Theatre 68 and director Ronnie Marmo have done an exceptional job at presenting a production that forces its audience to think, to experience, and yes, to understand … loss. This was not an easy production to direct, I am certain, and Marmo has done so beautifully.” —California Theatre Critic
“Director Ronnie Marmo keeps the action nicely choreographed over Danny Cistone’s sprawling set.” —Stage Mage
“Crumble shows the worst of what grief can do to an already dysfunctional family … quite stunning … an amazing dreamscape.” —LA Theatre Critic
