Finally one of my favorite play's is making it's Broadway debut. Now unfortunately I never got around to seeing the show during it's first New York production. At the time, I was in my first year at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, and to be honest I really didn't have the time to see much of anything. Unless it was free of course. Plus I was more into musicals back then anyway.
Thankfully a few years later a friend turned me on to the play. I loved it. Then shortly after that, they adapted the play into a critically acclaimed film starring Meryl Streep, Robert De Niro, and Diane Keaton who was nominated for an Oscar for her performance. Now here we are over twenty five years since the shows premier, and it is coming to the Great White Way.
So what is the show all about? Well I'll tell you. The show, which is based on playwright Scott McPherson's real experiences growing up in Florida as a child, tells the story of estranged sisters Bessie and Lee, who although related by blood, act more like distance acquaintance's. Lee, a single mother with a troubled teenage son returns home when Bessie, who has been caring for their elderly father, is diagnosed with leukemia. Previews for the show are set to begin at the American Airlines Theatre on June 8, 2017, with opening night scheduled for June 29. Tickets for the show are now on sale. Not only that but we are selling them. Get your tickets to see Marvin's Room on Broadway. I can't wait. Until next time theatre fans.
