The County Girl Opens On Broadway This Spring

To say that I am looking forward to this production would be an understatement. Truth be told I'm really not that familiar with the show or the 1955 Oscar winning film. The real reason I am so excited is because playing the lead is one of my favorite actor's, Oscar winner Morgan Freeman. To be perfectly honest the man could get up on stage and read the phone book and I would be happy. The playwright Clifford Odets' scored a big hit two years ago with Awake and Sing which won the Tony Award for Best Revival. Besides Mr. Freeman, the play stars Oscar winner Frances McDormand with direction by Tony and Oscar winner Mike Nichols. Now if that doesn't make you want to see it then I don't know what will. The Country Girl features the title character, Georgie, who is married to actor Frank Elgin, once a great theater star and now down on his luck. When Frank is offered a major role by hotshot director Bernie Dodd, he has the chance to make a major comeback. Performances begin April 3 at the Benard B. Jacobs Theatre, with an official opening night scheduled for April 27. Get your tickets now to what is sure to be one of this season's biggest hits!
