Opening Night: Debra Messing Makes Her Broadway Debut in Outside Mullingar

TheaterMania spoke with the cast and crew of the new play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright John Patrick Shanley.

"It's very rare for an Irish play to have a happy ending," says director Doug Hughes. But it's a happy beginning for Emmy-winning actress Debra Messing who is making her Broadway debut in Outside Millingar. Watch as we talk to the cast and crew about the audience's role in changing the play, and see Messing tear up as she talks about a childhood dream come true.
