One of the productions I was most excited to see didn't return. It ran March 3 - 11, 2020 and featured the B'way debut of Patsy Ferran, with a much anticipated Nick of Russell Tovey.

Did anyone here see it? Was there much chat about how it worked? Mantello seems an inspired director, and having just watched Metcalf on Hacks* (S2), ever resourceful and a comic force in character roles, I'm curious if the production ran with the still razor-sharp Albee humor. One can imagine Metcalf in her element in that first act. But fairly, in the whole play.

Was the absence of a large advance a reason for the non-return, or the actors' unavailability, or both? It disappeared in previews with Hangmen, a play I saw which returned with two recasts and sad box office.

*which also featured the great Harriet Harris this season, in a terrific one episode cameo. May she return to NY theater, too, and soon.
