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

I applaud the students for their dedication and sincerity. The voices did not carry throughout the auditorium. The students must be taught to speak out and face the audience even during the serious, sad conversations with friends. The announcer spoke much too fast and also did not enunciate his words. Perhaps if you video the performance and study it, it will help you with future performances. The video and information regarding teen statistics in the beginning of the show were very impressive and important to read and view.
