TheatreSquared has a new show opening next week, and it sounds like it’s going to be a good one.
Good People, the humor-laced drama by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, will premier on Thursday, Feb. 13, and run through March 9 at Nadine Baum Studios.
The show, set in Boston, is the story of the sharp-tongued single mother Margie, and the dire measures sometimes good people have to take to make rent and stay afloat during desperate times.
“Good People is a powerful new play by one of America’s most incisive playwrights — at turns suspenseful, funny and frighteningly real,” said T2 veteran and Good People director Amy Herzberg. “This is raw and compelling live theatre — I’m thrilled to share it with our audience.”
The production stars Arkansas native and stage and film star Rebecaa Harris (Unstoppable, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days), along with film and broadway veteran Sean Patrick Reilly, New York actor Margret Odette, Los Angeles actor Shirley Hughes, and locals Kieran Cronin and Lauren Halyard.
Tickets range from $15-36 (or $10 for patrons under 30), and are onsale now at waltonartscenter.org, or by calling the box office at 479-443-5600.
