Editor's note: The following information is a press release from the George Street Playhouse.
George Street Playhouse and Artistic Director David Saint have announced casting for the third production of their 2012-13 season, David Lindsay-Abaire’s Good People. The talented ensemble of actors consists of John Bolger, Ellen McLaughlin, Marianne Owen, Eric Riedmann, Cynthia Lauren Tewes and Zakiya Young. GSP Artistic Director David Saint will helm the play, which begins previews Tuesday, January 29 and runs through Sunday, Feb. 24. Opening night is set for Friday, Feb. 1.
Good People is produced in association with Seattle Repertory Theatre, and will move there following its New Brunswick run.
Good People is Pulitzer Prize winner, David Lindsay-Abaire’s sharply funny play about choices, chances and the American Dream. Caught in a cycle of lost jobs, late babysitters and last month’s rent, things aren’t great for Margie, a single mom in South Boston. Desperate for a job, she tracks down her high school sweetheart Mikey, a successful doctor whose life took a luckier path. Will stories and surprises about the old neighborhood give her and her daughter the break they need?
Creating the world of the play are a number of returning George Street veterans. Scenic designer James Youmans, Costume Designer David Murin and sound designer/composer Scott Killian are all returning to New Brunswick. Lighting designer Charlie Morrison is making his GSP debut.
