New York Times Critic's Pick

"A valentine to two lost souls finding each other."

, the new york times

Lanford Wilson's Pulitzer Prize–winning comedy returns in a joyful and moving new production starring Danny Burstein (Follies, South Pacific, Roundabout's Company) and Sarah Paulson (HBO's Game Change, "American Horror Story," and Roundabout's Crimes of the Heart).

At the end of World War II, Matt Friedman, a Jewish immigrant who has spent his life keeping others at a distance, returns to the small town where he first met Sally Talley. Nothing like her conservative Protestant family and neighbors, Sally is a nurse with deep misgivings about the country’s future. After a lifetime of believing they’ll never truly belong in the world around them, Matt has worked up the courage to ask Sally for her hand, and convince her that they do belong—together.

Michael Wilson (The Best Man, Roundabout’s The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore) directs this funny and heart-warming play about finding love when you stopped looking.
