When life and theatre collide it is a beautiful thing, is it not?
This revealing comedy peers into the backstage lives of Broadway power-duo Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne in Jeffrey Hatcher’s new play brimming with theatre lore. Set at the couple’s legendary Wisconsin estate in the 1930s, love triangles and family dysfunction reveal themselves when the rehearsal process for an upcoming production of Chekhov’s The Sea Gull becomes a true-to-life plot. A heartwarming and hilarious look into a slightly warped mirror reflects the real depths of truth, loyalty and love in private lives behind the curtain.
