After the delaying of previews and a cast change, Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of Donald Margulies' Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Dinner with Friends begins performances off-Broadway January 17. Starring Tony nominee Jeremy Shamos, Heather Burns, Darren Pettie and Marin Hinkle, the starry limited engagement is set for opening night on February 13.
Directed by Tony winner Pam McKinnon, Dinner with Friends follows Karen (Hinkle) and Gabe (Shamos), who played matchmaker with their friends Beth (Burns) and Tom (Pettie). Ever since, the two couples have been inseparable—going to the Vineyard every summer, raising their kids and enjoying countless dinners together. But when one marriage unexpectedly crumbles, the couples' lives begin to veer in opposite directions.
Can these four friends move on to the next chapter without moving apart or have they changed beyond recognition? Head to the Laura Pels Theatre to find out, but be quick! The show is only playing through April 13.
