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

Truly loved it! Annie is stellar. The mannerisms, the accent, the drama. She inhabits the character. She made us laugh and wax nostalgic and think. Supporting cast of "the children" and "the handyman" were equally up to the task. We (four friends and I) rate this as a truly amazing experience that we were privileged to enjoy together. And special "props" to the set designer ... Every last detail of tha Queens kitchen and bedroom set was real and resonated. We'd see it again in a hearbeat ... And maybe will. Don't miss it.
