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, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakable hope that come with having next to nothing in America. Learn More

Enjoyed the screening, HOWEVER, the low pitch of the seating prevents a clear view of the stage/screen and subtitles, especially if there is even an average height person seated in front of you. It is irritating, otherwise the venue is very nice. Wish they could do something about the pitch for the seating.
Perhaps the subtitles could be placed at the top of the screen.
The Consul performance was my favorite.
We look forward to future opera screenings, specifically Puccini.
