Step into Marvin’s Room, a humorous, heartfelt play about death, with tickets from ShowTickets.com. Written by Scott McPherson, Marvin’s Room follows the story of two estranged sisters, Lee and Bessie, who have never seen eye to eye. Lee is a single mother who’s been busy raising a troubled teenage son, Hank, while Bessie has her hands full caring for their elderly father and his soap-opera obsessed sister. After 18 years apart, the two finally reunite for the first time when Bessie is diagnosed with leukemia. Can these almost-strangers forgive each other and become a family?
The wildly funny, award-winning play first ran Off Broadway in 1991, and it was later adapted into a film in 1996, starring Meryl Streep, Diane Keaton and Leonardo DiCaprio. Watch as it takes the Broadway stage once again, this time under the direction of Anne Kauffman (Marjorie Prime, Maple and Vine). Let ShowTickets.com offer you the chance to fall in love with the unsentimental reality with hope, compassion and delightful humor that showcases the gift we give ourselves when we love unconditionally.
