Please join a special YAAMNY, Yale Club of Central NJ, Multi-Ivy League and Metropolitan Arts League event on Tues., March 29, 2011, 7pm for:

A Performance & Talk-Back with members of the cast and crew of†THE†NEW†GROUP's Marie and Bruce†written by Wallace Shawn and starring Marisa Tomei, Frank Whaley,Tina Benko, Russell G. Jones, Cindy Katz, Devin Ratray, Alok Tewari, Adam Trese, and Alison Wright.† This is a special event that will be moderated by Jeanine Jeo-Hi Kim (Yale BA, Columbia MBA), an Association of Yale Alumni Representative and Founder of the Metropolitan Arts League (, a charitable organization for the arts. The best seats (1st, 2nd, & 3rd row) have been reserved for our group.

There will be a happy hour before the show at Dalton's Bar & Grill for people to meet & talk (See details below).


Relentlessly daring playwright Wallace Shawn returns to The New Group to continue his vibrant collaboration with Scott Elliott (Aunt Dan and Lemon, The Fever, Threepenny Opera). This comedic masterpiece of marital strife recounts the day that Marie (Marisa Tomei) finally resolves to tell her charming and impossibly positive husband Bruce (Frank Whaley) that she's had enough.

Each of us is granted at birth the wonderful gift of consciousness-- we can think, we feel, and we try to understand things. But there's too much going on, we are horribly confused, and in our confusion we seek greater clarity by forming a bond with another human being. The search for understanding continues, but it's even more complicated.

- Wallace Shawn


Directed by The New Group's Artistic Director, Scott Elliot (Producer of Avenue Q), Marisa Tomei, Frank Whaley,Tina Benko, Russell G. Jones, Cindy Katz, Devin Ratray, Alok Tewari, Adam Trese, and Alison Wright, with sets designed by Tony award winning designer, Derek McLane (Harvard BA, Yale MFA)
