Distracted is a giddily clever comedy!  So much in the production deserves kudos: a funny and charismatic cast & Mark Brokaw’s bright, multitasking direction!”

“Cynthia Nixon and the ensemble cast fit together like the pieces of a hand-cut puzzle”

– Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal

 

“Cynthia Nixon gives a thoroughly believable and amusing performance in Lisa Loomer’s chronically entertaining comedy.” – Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News

 

Off-Broadway at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre

 

Roundabout Theatre Company’s (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) limited engagement of Distracted will play its final performance on Sunday, May 17th at 2:00 PM. Distracted, written by Lisa Loomer and directed by Mark Brokaw, features Peter Benson (Dr. Broder, Dr. Karnes, Dr. Jinks), Shana Dowdeswell (Natalie), Lisa Emery (Vera), Natalie Gold (Dr. Zavala, Waitress, Carolyn), Matthew Gumley (Jesse), Rick Holmes (Dad), Mimi Lieber (Sherry), Aleta Mitchell (Mrs. Holly, Dr. Waller, Nurse), Cynthia Nixon (Mama).

 

Distracted will have played 29 preview performances and 86 regular performances. Previews began on February 6th, 2009 and opened officially on March 4th, Off-Broadway at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street).

 

Distracted is a fast-paced and disarmingly funny look at parenting in the age of the Internet and Ritalin. In this New York premiere, a contemporary American mom reaches out to teachers, psychotherapists, and neighbors to figure out if Attention Deficit Disorder is the root of her son’s problems.
