I really like the stage and television work of Laurie Metcalf. She has arrived on Broadway to lead an outstanding cast in The Other Place, a new Manhattan Theatre Club production. The Other Place is a very well written psychological thriller by the very talented playwright Sharr White.
Although she is very well known for her work in T.V's Roseanne, Desperate Housewives and The Big Bang Theory, Ms. Metcalf has also done excellent work on Broadway in Brighton Beach Memoirs and November as well as in London productions of Long Day's Journey Into Night and All My Sons. Having started with the very talented and well known Steppenwolf Theater Company of Chicago, she has won 3 Emmy Awards, has been nominated 4 additional times, was nominated for 2 Golden Globe Awards, and received a Tony Award nomination for her role in Sam Shepard's Lie of the Mind.
In the Broadway show The Other Place, Laurie Metcalf is playing the leading role of Dr. Juliana Smithton, a very well respected neurologist whose husband has just filed for divorce, has a daughter planning to marry a much older man while her own health is in jeopardy as well. Although it appears that her world is falling apart around her, what the audience gets to see is not necessarily how things really are. As the play unfolds we see that the past collides with the present and what facts we know aren't necessarily the case and that the Dr.'s health sheds a different light on things for sure.
Daniel Stern plays Ian in The Other Place. Mr. Stern is best known for starring in many films such as City Slickers and Home Alone amongst several others. He also created the role of the narrator in The Wonder Years after getting his start in New York's Public Theater and The Manhattan Theatre Club. Zoe Perry makes her Broadway debut in The Other Place and has done quite allot of film, TV and stage in Los Angeles and John Schiappa rounds out the case having done excellent work on TV, in theatre and on film.
The Other Place is directed by 2 time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello who also directed Other Desert Cities, Wicked and Love! Valour! Compassion!
The Other Place is playing at New York's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre located at 261 West 47th Street between Broadway and 8th Avenues. The show is selling tickets through February 24, 2013.
