Love always deserved another chapter. Neil Simon is widely regarded as one of the most successful and performed playwrights in the world. Chapter Two is his semi-autobiographical comedy about a recently widowed writer George Schneider whose press agent brother introduces him to soap opera actress Jennie Malone. Both are trying to come to terms with starting from scratch, and through their friends who are determined to see the two happy again, the pair meet and begin a whirlwind romance. The play was written as a tribute to Marsha Mason, Mr. Simon’s second wife, who was also nominated for an Academy Award and won a Golden Globe Award for playing the lead role in the film. Ms. Mason, who wowed us last season with her direction of An Act of God will direct this comedy filled with truth and wisdom. Center Stage. $25 - $70.
