Theresa Rebeck Collects First Broadway Opening Night With Mauritius

Theresa Rebeck Collects First Broadway Opening Night With Mauritius

This evening marks American playwright Theresa Rebeck's Broadway debut with Mauritius, a play about half sisters and their deceased mother's stamp collection. Opening at the Biltmore Theatre, Mauritius is the Manhattan Theatre Club's first Broadway production this theatrical season.

Helmed by Doug Hughes (Doubt, Inherit The Wind), Mauritius' impressive cast includes Dylan Baker, Bobby Cannavale, Katie Finneran (whom I last saw in her well-deserved Tony-winning romp in Noises Off in 2001), Alison Pill, and a return to the Great White Way by Academy Award-winning actor F. Murray Abraham, who's been absent from Broadway since 1997's Triumph Of Love. (I haven't seen him since he appeared as Roy Cohn in Angels In America: Millennium Approaches back in the mid-90s)

Will all these credentials add up to a collection the critics believe is worth seeing? Find out tomorrow as I provide a critics' capsule.

Tickets for this limited run show are on sale through November 25.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
