First Look at Janeane Garofalo and Lili Taylor in Marvin's Room
Opening night for Scott McPherson's drama is set for June 29.
Roundabout Theatre Company's production of Scott McPherson's drama Marvin's Room recently began performances under the direction of Anne Kauffman at the American Airlines Theatre. Opening night is set for June 29.
The play stars Janeane Garofalo as Lee, Lili Taylor as Bessie, and Celia Weston as Ruth. They are joined by Jack DiFalco as Hank, Carman Lacivita as Bob and "Marvin," Nedra McClyde as Dr. Charlotte, Luca Padovan as Charlie, and Triney Sandoval as Dr. Wally.
Marvin's Room follows estranged sisters Lee and Bessie. Lee is a single mother who's been busy raising her troubled teenage son, Hank. Bessie's got her hands full with their elderly father and his soap-opera-obsessed sister. When Bessie is diagnosed with leukemia, the two women reunite for the first time in 18 years.
The creative team includes Laura Jellinek (sets), Jessica Pabst (costumes), Japhy Weideman (lights), and Daniel Kluger (original music and sound).
