Margulies Mania!

In David Saint's first season here at the playhouse he brought the extraordinary Uta Hagen in Donald Margulies' Collected Stories fresh from its run in New York. In January, Margulies's OBIE award winning play, Sight Unseen will open here starring Matthew Arkin (from last year's The Scene and the original cast of Dinner with Friends). Mr. Margulies who has also written Dinner with Friends and Brooklyn Boy, has two new works opening this year on both coasts. Shipwrecked, An Entertainment, will open with in New York at Primary Stages starring GSP alumn Michael Countryman, and Time Stands Still starring Alicia Silverstone at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles directed by Dan Sullivan. As the saying goes, it's all in the timing. Incidentally, all three shows will be running virtually at the same time. We're thrilled to be apart of Margulies Mania this year!
