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

Good show. My seat was up top but at intermission I moved closer as there were empyty seats scattered throughout the theatre. Yes, this show is dated, but it is still good to see. I found that Frances Conroy spoke so softly at times that I could not hear her from my original seat. I also thought the staging was odd at times, with the actors speaking while their backs were to the audience. I liked the enthusiasm of the young actor's performance.

Martin Sheen, Frances Conroy and Brian Geraghty to star in The Subject Was Roses. When it comes to family, there are three sides to every story.
A young man’s return from World War II becomes a catalyst for an emotional tug-of-war in which love is a prize and a weapon.. Martin Sheen returns to the play that earned him a Tony Award nomination in 1964; now as the patriarch of a family forced to confront its own privatized emotions and buried truths.
Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under_) and Brian Geraghty (_The Hurt Locker) complete the family triangle struggling to reconnect after years of emotional distance and rediscover the beauty in the simple gift of roses.
