Encouraged by her friends, Margaret takes her job hunt to a (now) "comfortable" doctor she went to high school with in Southie over 30 years ago. They dated briefly and their breakup just might coincide with the time frame that her daughter was born. He "got out" and made something for himself. What will she say to him? How does the meeting go? These questions and more will be answered. Or will they?
Even at just the first week of previews, Parsons and McDormand are turning in top notch performances - and it will only get better from here. My dear friend Donna is usually a bellwether of good actors and great plays - but I fear she may have mis-under-estimated the humor and depth of this fine work. I encourage her and everyone else to check out some Good People on West 47th.
