Transported back to the east coast, we are thoroughly entertained as the dialogue smoothly transitions us to a house full of LA drama in a century old house near Williamstown, Massachusetts. We enjoyed a lot of laughs as the all star cast reminds us how incredible the theater talent is in Los Angeles. What happens when a family of performers has to come to terms with the roles they play in each others lives?
Starring Tony and Emmy winner Blythe Danner, Scott Foley (Scandal, The Unit, Felicity), Eric Lange (The Bridge, Weeds), David Rasche (Speed-The-Plow Broadway, Lunch Hour), Emily Swallow (The Mentalist, Manhattan Theatre Club’s Romantic Poetry), and Sarah Steele (off-Broadway: Slowgirl, The Netflix Plays), catch Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies‘ comedic dramatic play at The Geffen Playhouse now until July 13.
Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (Time Stands Still, Good People) directs the entertaining performance which brings about many LA truths. Inspired by Chekhov’s pastoral comedies, this is Margulies’ sixth Geffen Production, including Dinner With Friends, Coney Island Christmas, Time Stands Still, and Sight Unseen.
The Country House is a co-production with Manhattan Theatre Club, which will present the Broadway run of the production this fall (Previews begin September 9 for an October 2 opening night at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre) following the Geffen run. Danner will star in both the Geffen and Manhattan Theatre Club runs of the play. The Country House was commissioned by MTC through the U.S. Trust New American Play Commissioning Program.
