Who You See Here

August 4 - September 2, 2017
WHO YOU SEE HERE, a farcical comedy by Emmy Award winner Matt Hoverman about an uptight therapist and her recovering alcoholic husband who find their lives upturned and their love tested when charismatic but disturbed movie star Tom Speck staggers into their small town’s AA meeting. Add a beautiful psychiatric patient with a stalking problem and you’ve got a smart, funny play about anonymity, celebrity, and making the perfect salad.

Director Jeanie Hackett (LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT at the Geffen starring Alfred Molina and Jane Kaczmarek) helms a terrific ensemble cast of comedy pros - Angela Goethals (HOME ALONE, JERRY MAGUIRE), Mather Zickel (I LOVE YOU, MAN, RACHEL GETTING MARRIED), Russel Soder (I MARRIED A MOBSTER) and Kat Fairaway (GETTING MEISNERED) - in the world premiere of this comedy.

This play contains adult themes and is not recommended for under age 13. Includes profanity, adult content and partial nudity.
