Roundabout Theatre Company brings Scott McPherson’s award-winning Marvin’s Room to Broadway for the first time after its 1991 Off-Broadway production and Academy Award-nominated 1996 screen adaptation that starred Meryl Streep, Diane Keaton, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. McPherson’s poignant and wildly funny play is about the laughter that can shine through life’s darkest moments.
SYNOPSIS: Estranged sisters Lee and Bessie have never seen eye to eye. 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.
Performances begin June 8
