John Patrick Shanley's ''Outside Mullingar' celebrated its opening night at Manhattan Theatre Club's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on Thursday, January 23. Brían F. O'Byrne, Debra Messing, Peter Maloney, and Dearbhla Molloy lead the cast of the new romantic comedy, which centers on a pair of Irish loners who spend years drawn to each other without making a move. Joining the cast, playwright, and director Doug Hughes for the after-party at the Copacabana were guests including Uma Thurman, Nina Arianda, Will Chase, Zosia Mamet, and Julianna Margulies.
