MTC Announces Frances McDormand to Appear in GOOD PEOPLE

MANHATTAN THEATRE CLUB ANNOUNCES

OSCAR WINNER FRANCES McDORMAND

TO APPEAR IN DAVID LINDSAY-ABAIRE’S

GOOD PEOPLE

WORLD PREMIERE PLAY TO PREVIEW TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 8;

OPENING NIGHT SET FOR THURSDAY, MARCH 3

Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) are pleased to announce that Academy Award winner Frances McDormand will return to Broadway in Manhattan Theatre Club’s world premiere production of GOOD PEOPLE, the new play by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire to be directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan.

GOOD PEOPLE will play at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street). Previews for the limited engagement will begin on Tuesday, February 8, 2011 with an opening night of Thursday, March 3.

McDormand is an acclaimed actress having received an Oscar for her portrayal of ‘Marge Gunderson’ in the beloved Coen Brothers’ film Fargo. On Broadway, she received a Tony nomination for portrayal of ‘Stella’ in the 1988 revival of A Streetcar Named Desire. She most recently appeared in the acclaimed Off-Broadway production of North Atlantic.

Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire, along with Rabbit Hole director and Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, return to MTC to premiere his newest work, the timely and powerful GOOD PEOPLE.

Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo… where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills… and where Margie Walsh (McDormand) has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who has made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out.

With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.

Together, playwright David Lindsay-Abaire and MTC have brought four outstanding new plays to the New York stage. Their most recent collaboration, Rabbit Hole, earned a Tony Award and garnered Lindsay-Abaire the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

GOOD PEOPLE was commissioned through MTC’s Bank of America Commissioning Program.

Special funding for GOOD PEOPLE was provided by The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation.

Additional casting and creative team for GOOD PEOPLE as well as other listings information will be announced in the coming weeks.

Subscriptions to MTC’s 2010-2011 season are available online at www.ManhattanTheatreClub.com
