RELATIVELY SPEAKING star Marlo Thomas sat down live with NBC “The Today Show” host Brian Williams this morning to talk about her acclaimed return to the Broadway stage.
The world premiere of RELATIVELY SPEAKING, three one-act comedies by the prolific writing trio of Ethan Coen, Elaine May and Woody Allen, opened on Broadway on October 20 to acclaim from critics.
“Marlo Thomas is sublime as this fragrant but poisonous powder puff, and she perfectly captures the obliviousness that is a byproduct of overweening ego.” – Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
Directed by John Turturro, the ensemble cast of 16 stars Caroline Aaron, Bill Army, Katherine Borowitz, Lisa Emery, Ari Graynor, Steve Guttenberg, Danny Hoch, Julie Kavner, Jason Kravits, Richard Libertini, Mark Linn-Baker, Max Gordon Moore, Patricia O’Connell, Allen Lewis Rickman, Grant Shaud, Marlo Thomas.
RELATIVELY SPEAKING is comprised of three one-act comedies, each springing from a different branch of the family tree. In Talking Cure, Ethan Coen uncovers the sort of insanity that can come only from family. In George is Dead, Elaine May explores the hilarity of death. In Honeymoon Motel, Woody Allen invites you to the sort of wedding day you won’t forget.
RELATIVELY SPEAKING plays at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre (256 West 47 Street) on Broadway.
