Jill Eikenberry To Star in Be a Good Little Widow at Ars Nova
In the play, Melody (Schmidt) thought being a young wife was hard, until she became a widow. Luckily her mother-in-law, Hope (Eikenberry), is a professional - mourner, that is. Navigating the prickly terrain of pressed black dresses, well-intended advice and inappropriate outbursts, Melody stumbles toward understanding what it means to find someone through losing them.
The production will feature set design by Daniel Zimmerman, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Burke Brown, and sound design by Bart Fasbender.
