OVERVIEW

Written by Ethan Coen, Elaine May, and Woody Allen | Directed by John Turturro

Four-time Oscar® winner Ethan Coen and two-time Oscar nominee Elaine May join with Woody Allen for a one-of-a-kind Broadway experience directed by John Turturro.Julie Kavner, Steve Guttenberg, Mark Linn-Baker, and Marlo Thomas head a cast of 15 in this hilarious evening of one-act plays that explore the often outrageous reality of relatives.

Each one-act comedy springs from a different branch of the family tree. In Talking Cure, Ethan Coen uncovers the sort of insanity that can only come from family. In George is Dead, Elaine May explores the hilarity of death. And in Honeymoon Motel, Woody Allen invites you to the sort of wedding day you won’t forget.
